Phil & Margy’s Role

Phil and Margy Mitton work at the Wycliffe Bible Translators Australia National Centre in Kangaroo Ground, near Melbourne.

Phil is part of the maintenance team for the offices, the language school and the accommodation for the staff and students.

Margy works at the switchboard and reception, and in the  Communications Department doing editing and proof-reading.

They also spend part of each year as relief staff at a missionary motel, Tree Tops Lodge, in Cairns. This motel is jointly owned by Wycliffe Australia and Mission Aviation Fellowship Australia (MAF) but is used by up to 50 different mission organisations for training courses, medical evacuations from the Pacific area (particularly PNG), missionaries’ holidays, as a stopover to and from the  missionaries’ country of service and their home country, etc.

Vision

To see disciples of Jesus from the minority language groups of the world growing through the Scriptures being available to them in their own heart language.

This means helping those 2167 Bible translation projects (2013 stats) that the Wycliffe Global Alliance is involved in right now, to finish the job. It also means, in prayer, taking a few risks to see how the church might get started in the estimated 1919 languages that still don’t have even one verse of Scripture that they fully understand.

The primary role of Wycliffe Australia in this vision is to train and support Australian Christians who are willing to live cross-culturally, using their skills and character to give a practical helping hand to local communities undertaking translation projects or to pioneer new ones ready to start.
