From Here to There

Being called to serve on the mission field is just the beginning of the journey

You feel the call to become a missionary. You join a mission organization, receive an assignment and go overseas to work.


Not quite. There are a number of steps involved in preparing for missionary service with Lutheran Bible Translators. After you arrive on the mission field there are several more steps to follow before you can begin serious work with a language project. But there is so much joy along the way!

Listen to Lutheran Bible Translators’ podcast The Long and Winding Road to learn how Elliot and Serena Derricks came to serve in Cameroon and the exciting things happening in the Subula* language community.
