"But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe Him? And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them?" Romans 10:14
Nick and Kylie Garrety
CCO Jubilee, Virginia Tech
Nick and Kylie Garrety are part new CCO ministry launch at Virginia Tech. It has been a challenge this year with the current COVID-19 crisis. Virginia Tech, like many universities, went virtual for a while but since has allowed students to return to campus.
An important part of Nick and Kylie's ministry is a weekly "Multicultural dinner". During this time they walk through a four chapter gospel (creation, fall, redemption and restoration) to encourage students to share about their own journeys, experiences and ethnic identities.
David and Katherine Liddle
Wycliffe Bible Translators, Germany
David Liddle is the IT Manager for Wycliffe Germany. Currently, in addition to his routine activities, he has a few projects underway that include upgrading security of accounts and the building and upgrading existing systems.
David and Katherine's oldest son, Jonathan, is in the middle of his initial training with the U.S. Marine Corps. Their youngest son, Caleb, is in his last year of school and in search of inspiration for what follows. Wycliffe USA and Germany agreed to make an administrative change to David and Katherine's employment that means they are now registered with Germany's national health and retirement programs; that represents quite a commitment to working in Germany, but they believe that Wycliffe Germany and their dedication to people in difficult-to-reach countries is worth it!
Pioneer Bible Translators, USA
Lori Witham is currently serving as a typesetter in support of Bible translators in Paupau New Guinea. Lori lived in Paupau New Guinea for many years, but has returned to the States to help care for her mother.
In 1979 a group of Aruamu men travelled to Madang and heard the Gospel. They came back to their village and shared what they heard and God began establishing His church among them. The men began praying that God would send someone to help translate the Scriptures into the Aruamu language.
Twenty-five years later, in 2004, through the work of Pioneer Bible Translators, the Aruamu people received the entire New Testament in their own language. Sixteen years after that, in November of 2020, the typesetting for the complete Aruamu Bible, Old and New Testaments, was sent off for printing.
We praise God for Lori Witham, her co-workers and those faithful men whose prayers were answered!
