Missions Around the World...
Greg and Tracy McLean and children Raya,Kateand John are living and ministering as mission workers in Cameroon, Central Africa, with Wycliffe Bible Translators. God has lead them as they acquired the tools of linguistics, translation and literacy to effectively minister among the Mfumte language group in a remote mountainous area of the north. Pray for the Lord's guidance and presence for the McLean family as we partner with them.
We are also privileged to have a growing relationship with Randy, Anita, Cameron and Hudson Lebold with Wycliffe Bible Translators.
