Joel and Becky joined Wycliffe Bible Translators in 2001 and served for 12 years in Bible translation and administrative roles with SIL Mexico Branch. When family health needs required them to remain in the US, Joel was asked to serve as Maintenance Coordinator at the Cowan retirement apartments in Dallas, Texas. In his new role, Joel will be a part of a team who provide an affordable and supportive environment for retired Wycliffe missionaries who have faithfully served God through Bible translation. Many of these continue to contribute by sharing their wealth of experience with missionaries in training. We invite you to consider investing in Bible translation through the Wycliffe ministry of Joel and Becky.
