Bill & Lori's Profile

Bill and Lori Gardner, members of Wycliffe since 1983, worked with SIL in Africa for 19 years, in Central (Congo-Brazzaville), Southern (Mozambique) and Eastern Africa (Kenya), primarily training Africans in linguistics for Bible translation into their own languages.
Their present Wycliffe assignment is to train students in Linguistics and Ethnography at CanIL (Canada Institute of Linguistics), located on the campus of Trinity Western University, preparing them to work cross-culturally with minority language groups in Bible translation and language development.
Besides teaching at CanIL, Bill is also a Linguistics consultant for Southern Africa, seeking to develop more Linguistics specialists and consultants for that region. He is also an ordained minister.
Their two adult sons, Jonathan and Michael, grew up in Africa, are now married and each have a son themselves, whom Bill and Lori enjoy visiting in California during breaks between semesters at CanIL.
