Brad and Maria Festen
Brad and Maria Festen have been members of Wycliffe Bible Translators since 1994, serving in the Central African Republic (CAR) from 1998 to 2017. They lived in a small village in the Southwestern part of the country for ten years, doing linguistic analysis and helping to start the Mpyemo Bible translation project, which transitioned to local leadership in 2011.
In 2017, the Festens returned to the USA for medical reasons. Now Brad is continuing to help with the Mpyemo translation via the Internet, and Maria is working in the home office of TeachBeyond, another mission organization. Even though they are now based in the USA for an indefinite period, Brad and Maria want to support the Mpyemo project in any way they can, and help bring it to completion. Your partnership in prayer and financial support is greatly appreciated.
