LUONG, Raymond and Lucy

Raymond and Lucy take delight in the power of God’s Word to transform believers worldwide. They are inspired by the impact made when churches in minority language communities have the Scripture in their mother tongues. When local churches have access to the Bible in a language that is best understood by their members, hearts are transformed and the local church is well-equipped to disciple believers.
Raymond joined Wycliffe in 2016 and served as a software developer on multiple projects. He currently works on an app called Scripture Forge, which gives Bible translation teams access to AI features that make translation work more efficient and accurate to the original biblical text. Lucy joined Wycliffe first as a volunteer in 2019, then more recently as a member in 2024 and plans to serve in a role that cares for the wellbeing of missionaries locally and abroad.
Raymond and Lucy met at the Urbana missions conference in the United States on New Year’s Eve in 2015 and were married in 2019. They live in Calgary with their daughter, Junia, and plan to adopt their second child from Taiwan.
