The Savaikos' Story
There are almost 2,000 languages spoken in the world today without any Scripture in them. The Savaikos desire to bring the Word of God to unreached people groups who have no access to Scripture in their own language. Ben and Rose have served in Dodoma, Tanzania, since 2013, with Wycliffe Bible Translators, and have a son named Judah. Ben serves as the operations coordinator, and Rose serves as a translation advisor for two language projects, both of which have no Scripture in their language yet.
Their ministry budget is fully dependent on raising financial support, so they greatly appreciate any and all gifts and cherish your partnership and support in bringing Scripture to those who do not yet have it in their native language.
