Leigh and Barbara Labrecque worked among the Paama and Southeast Ambrym people of Vanuatu from 2001 until 2016. May 2016 they celebrated the dedications of the Bible in these two language groups (full NT and OT summary in both printed and audio format (electronic is still in the works). Since 2013, Leigh and Barbara and family have been reassigned to Canada working at the Canada Institute of Linguistics in BC, Wycliffe's Canadian training school. Leigh is a Literacy Program development instructor and works in the area of communications and promotion. Barbara works in the area of student support and hospitality. We love being part of God's plan to  equip the next generation of Bible Translators, cross-cultural literacy workers, Scripture use workers, and those assuming other cross-cultural mission oriented roles.
