Beth Acton and Joy Ayabe
Wycliffe Bible Translators in Papua New Guinea
Beth Acton and Joy Ayabe have served in a number of roles in Papua New Guinea over the past 27 years as translators, literacy workers, administrators and trainers. They are currently involved in training Papua New Guinean men and women to work within their own vernacular languages as literacy workers and trainers. Crucial to the task of providing Scriptures in the heart languages of the people, is ensuring that there is a 'readership' ready for those Scriptures when they are produced. Beth and Joy have completed the New Testament translation of the Bible for the tribe that they lived with in Papua New Guinea.

Fhanor and Socorro Pejendino
C.P. Church Planters in Guatemala City
Fhanor and Socorro have been sent to Guatemala City by the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination to plant churches in this area. On a recent mission trip to Guatemala, a group from our church worked with them to build a children's classroom in a home church. They also helped a family in the community whose home was badly damaged in a recent mudslide. They removed mud that was several feet deep using only small buckets to carry the mud from the house.

Gary and Jackie Burnett
Missionaries to Colombia, South America
Gary and Jackie are long time friends of Spring Creek Church. Jackie (originally from Colombia) taught Spanish to several of our members. They have recently been called to the mission field in Colombia, South America. Here is their mission statement - "Our mission is to establish partnerships with local churches, Christian schools, and seminaries to help build on sound doctrine and teaching of Scripture. Because of the decades of violence in Colombia, women and children have been greatly affected. We will facilitate and collaborate with our local partners to create pathways to reach them with the gospel. Our passion is to assist and help strengthen the local churches through Christian education, evangelistic outreach and discipleship ministry."

Chandler and Chelsea Roberds
Missionaries with Launch Global in Atlanta, Georgia
Chandler and Chelsea began their ministry while living in Auburn, Alabama. They reached out to students at Auburn University, particularly those in the international community through their involvement with Launch Global ministry, by befriending them and then offering to read to them in their native language from the Bibles on their smart phones. This opened the door to the Lord enabling them to share the Gospel with them. Recently married, they have been called into a full time ministry with Launch Global in Atlanta, Georgia and will continue reaching out to students and others in their community there. Chelsea grew up attending Spring Creek Church. She and Chandler have helped in activities such as Vacation Bible School at our church and they return to visit whenever they can.

Wycliffe Bible Translators
I'm a full time missionary with Wycliffe Associates, and our mission is to advance Bible translation around the world. When I'm not overseas teaching English or coordinating translation workshops and events, I'm sending workers to the field from our US headquarters. Seeing scripture come to life for people who have never heard God's Word in their own language is a joy and privilege. Thank you for supporting me as we work towards giving "every nation, tribe, people and language" access to the life-changing message of the Bible in their mother tongue.
