Steve and Gail Quigg

Steve and Gail are United Methodist missionaries with the General Board of Global Ministries. Steve is an airplane pilot, and he and Gail worked in the Congo flying medical supplies, clergy, and other missionaries where they were needed in the Congo area. Civil unrest in that area of the world forced the Quiggs to leave and begin working with Missionary Safety International. Now, they teach aviation safety to other missionary pilots around the world.

Wycliffe Bible Translators

Today about 200 million people do not have the Bible in their own language. Wycliffe’s vision is to see the Bible accessible to all people in the language they understand best. To make this vision a reality, Wycliffe also focuses on community development, literacy development and church partnerships. Isle of Hope UMC supports three Wycliffe missionary families.

Michael and Alanna Boutin: The Boutins worked for many years in Malaysia translating the bible into the Bonggi language. Today they live in Dallas, Texas where Michael works as an instructor at the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics.

Phil and Cathy Davison: The Davisons have worked with Wycliffe in Cote D’Ivoire, Mali, Cameroon and Burkina Faso where they taught linguistics. At the present time, they serve in Mali.

John and Rosalie Rentz: John and Rosalie work with Wycliffe in New Zealand translating the bible into the Aiwo language. For more info visit www.wycliffe.org
