Derek & Kristy Johnson | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Derek & Kristy Johnson

There are currently about 300 Bible-less people groups in Papua New Guinea, and Wycliffe's goal is to see a translation project started in all of them by 2025. Consequently, there is an urgent need for a team of people to support this endeavor, and the Johnson family is a vital part of that team. Derek teaches at Ukarumpa International School's Secondary School where the children of translators and staff can earn a fully accredited high school diploma. He teaches math and wood shop.
Kristy serves at the Ukarumpa Clinic as the Physical Therapist, making sure that missionaries receive the care they need to thrive in their service to the people of Papua New Guinea. Finally, their three boys do a wide variety of small service projects to help the mission community. Together, their mission is to make the job of the translators easier by taking care of them and their families. Their ministry number is 249455.

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This monthly budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
