Moitozo, Stephen & Glenda
Wycliffe Bible Translators / SIL International
Wycliffe Bible Translators has assigned Steve to their premiere partner, SIL International, the world authority on minority languages (all the ones that need Bible Translation).
It's hard to imagine that 1,800 of the world's 6,900 languages are still unwritten. But this number is decreasing because of the work of SIL. Since the 1930s SIL has been helping speakers of minority languages use their languages for better lives, especially spiritual lives. SIL discovers, documents, and tracks the world's languages; develops writing systems and dictionaries; and translates materials, including the Bible.
Bible translation organizations, aid/development organizations, and ministries of education who need help working in any one of the thousands of minority languages contact SIL to help. Currently SIL is working on over 1,000 projects in 90 countries. Steve enables all of this by serving on the Global Operations Leadership Team as the head of SIL's Global Technology and Information Services group, enabling the work of more than 12,000 missionaries worldwide. His responsibilities also include shepherding SIL's innovation agenda.
