* non-salaried: You may have noticed that almost all of Wycliffe's mission opportunities are 'non-salaried'. This may sound daunting, but worldwide there are approximately 7,000 Wycliffe members who do not receive a salary from Wycliffe. Despite the more obvious dangers from tropical diseases etc, the need to raise personal support remains the major reason why initial interest does not result in actual involvement. So how does it work? To put it simply, God is faithful. The God who inspires people to join in this work has also inspired people to support them. Find out more.
