This summer I am continuing my studies at Canada Institute of Linguistics in Langley, B.C.! I am working towards a MA in Linguistics and Applied Exegesis. I plan to finish my MLE in the Spring of 2016, and then leave on an assignment once I complete a two-week training event in Florida, and finish my partnership development.
God willing, I will use this degree to help with Bible translation efforts with the organization Wycliffe. Are you familiar with the need for Bible translation into indigenous languages? If not, please read below.
Thank you to everyone that is supporting me this summer with their prayers and finances! Your prayers help me in more ways than I can know, and all gifts added up to 100% for my semester needs! While it didn’t all come in quite as soon as I had hoped, I double-checked with the school and found that I would be able to have just a bit more time to pay tuition. If you haven’t already, I invite you to click on the “PRAY & GIVE” link to learn more about how you can partner with me in prayer as I work towards this task.
Thank you for helping Alex go to school!
Percentage of funding given:
Remaining need to complete funding:

$0 in monthly support for living expenses!
Lots of prayer
There are long lists of ethnic groups wanting translations, so that their congregations can better grow in faith and share the Gospel in their communities! Wycliffe has set an ambitious goal for themselves: to start a language translation project for every language that needs one by 2025. I feel incredibly blessed and privileged to have this opportunity to partner with them in this great and critically important mission.

Wycliffe enables indigenous groups to translate the scriptures into their heart-language; their native language. Did you know that there are currently 1,900 people groups without any part of the Bible? That’s 180 million people who are cut off from a direct link to God’s Word. 79% of the current translation programs are being facilitated by Wycliffe, the Summer Institute of Linguistics, or other partner organizations.
