TENNANT, Dawson and Pat


Major area of Service: Dawson serves in Linguistic Software Development (LSDev). As manager, he leads the LSDev team in Calgary.

Previous area of service: Dawson and Pat had been serving as linguists and translators for a minority people group, in a sensitive area of the world, until their move to Canada in the Summer of 2013. This move was so that their sons, Joseph and David, could have a healthy transition into adult life in Canada.

Future direction of service: At present, Dawson is serving in LSDev, while he and Pat continue to seek God’s leading in finding additional financial partners. The couple is trusting in God’s provision for their full support. They are open to God’s leading for overseas opportunities of service with Wycliffe, now that their boys are pretty much settled in Canada.

Pat: Pat serves in the prayer ministries department. She collects relevant Bible translation-related prayer and praise items and distributes them to intercessors across Canada. God’s Word has power to break strongholds and transform lives. Spreading the Word requires much prayer backing.
