Wycliffe missionaries live all over the world serving the needs of Bible-less people. In order for them to do their work effectively these missionaries need to have area meetings, training and most importantly an opportunity for personal spiritual refreshment. The major obstacle for all the adults to fully participate in these meetings is, who is going to take care of the kids? Refuge 139 responded to this need by creating a high quality, VBS-type program catering to the specific needs of missionary kids. We are looking for someone to join our team and lead several trips a year.

There are nearly 600 million people in the world with little or no access to Scripture in the language they know best, their heart language. JAARS is here to do something about that.
JAARS makes Bible translation and language development possible, especially in the most remote and difficult places on earth. We do that by enabling locally-appropriate and sustainable solutions in transportation, technology, media, and training.
We need more staff to make in possible. Of those who work at the JAARS Center in Waxhaw, N.C., 50% are volunteers either short- or long-term, full- or part-time, and of all ages and training backgrounds. Missionaries and a few paid personnel round out the staff.
Consider becoming part of our team that impacts people for eternity by helping give them God’s Word!
