Imagine needing to leave your child with disabilities in search of daily provisions or a modest income.
Is there hope? Is there a God? Will He ease your situation?
Living with a disability in the third world is an incredible challenge for the entire family, but an incredible opportunity for Jesus’ holistic healing to proceed from His Word and His hand of provision.

English speakers are blessed with hundreds of versions of the Bible to choose from, while millions of people around the globe still wait to hear God’s Word in their own language. Motivated by a desire to help give people access to the Word of God in their heart language, Tim and Martha Matzke serve with Wycliffe Bible Translators. The Matzkes have spent most of the last 20 years in the Solomon Islands where they have served in literacy, administration and Scripture promotion.
During the past 5 years, the Matzkes have served as the directors for their mission group in the Solomon Islands. New Testaments in 5 languages and a full Bible in another, representing decades of work by Solomon Islander translators and their Wycliffe colleagues, were launched during this period. New Bible translation projects are getting started in several other language groups.
Tim and Martha are planning on returning to the Solomon Islands in early 2020 to support Bible translation through a ministry in literacy. In order to make this possible, the Matzkes need additional prayer and financial support. If you would like to know more about their work or be a part of their support team, please visit their website: www.matzkemission.com.
