Today on the Wycliffe USA’s prayer blog they asked for prayer for Wycliffe representatives that will be working with the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). This program is very close to my heart. It was the CFC in 2007 that first introduced me to Wycliffe Bible translators when I was sitting at my comfortable desk contently working for Uncle Sam. I was looking through the myriad of nonprofit organizations that I could make a pay roll deduction to and for some reason Wycliffe’s name stood out to me. Wanting to know more I visited their website and learned about the need for Information Technology (IT) missionaries. It was this day that our journey to Cameroon began, I could never imagined all we would see or do.
As we shared our stories in our training camp in July of 2008 I met the woman in Orlando who was responsible for the CFC for Wycliffe USA and she shared with me that she had been praying that someone would join and serve with Wycliffe because of the CFC. Praise the Lord for her prayers and I encourage you to begin to pray today for additional workers and also for the CFC.
For those of you Federal Employees I encourage you to consider donating to Wycliffe CFC #11737.
