Sarah grew up in Corvallis. God used the Calvary Corvallis high school ministry to put a love in her heart for the Lord and His word. While she was studying at Oregon State University, Sarah attended a banquet put on by Wycliffe Bible Translators. She had no idea that there are over 6,800 languages spoken in the world and that so many language groups don’t have the Bible in their language. As of Oct. 2017, there are still approximately 1,636 language groups without any Scripture in their language. Approximately 114 million people can’t read God’s word because it isn’t translated into a language they can understand well.
That broke Sarah’s heart and she felt God leading her to help provide His word to people who don’t have it yet. After graduating from OSU, she attended Cornerstone School of Ministry where God further equipped her and continued to confirm this direction for her life. She completed linguistic training, and then moved to West Asia in 2006.
Sarah serves in a country where over 70 languages are spoken. Only three of them have a whole Bible and eight have a New Testament. There are twelve language groups with Bible translation in progress. So much work still needs to be done!
Sarah enjoys working in a translation project to help provide God’s word to the people of West Asia. The team Sarah works with is developing exegetical and other supporting materials for translation projects across the region, which will significantly help the process of translation into the remaining languages.
Due to the nature of her work, contact with Sarah is sensitive. For more information, please email the missions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
