Marcel's Profile

I will be working in the Wycliffe Offices in Lima, Peru assisting with archiving; that is, I will be taking detailed information about various people groups and making it more easily accessible. It is similar to what a librarian does with a card cataloging.

I will also be teaching English to various members of Wycliffe's staff. I will be using Bible study as a means to accomplish this because Wycliffe staff who desire to learn English will benefit from learning Biblical or theological words in English. Also, I have a gift for theology.

During the early part of my internship, I will also be learning Spanish. This will give me an opportunity towards the end of my internship to learn how the Bible translation process works and also be able to assist with that process.
