Serving Ethiopia & Sierra Leone

Dr. Jim and Susan Kaiser

Meet the Missionary

Dr. Jim and Susan Kaiser are excited to help translation teams finish their translations of the Bible. Jim serves as a translation consultant with teams in Ethiopia and Sierra Leone. Some of this work involves traveling to visit the teams, and some is done using video chat through the internet.

In the early 1980s, Susan helped establish a literacy program for the Loko people of Sierra Leone. Jim and Susan helped to translate the New Testament for the Kono people of Sierra Leone, and later assisted the Old Testament translation project for the Chaldean people of Iraq.

Jim and Susan live in Macomb, MI. They have three grown sons, all born in Sierra Leone, and seven grandchildren.

The Kaisers are thankful for your partnership in getting God’s Word into people’s hands and hearts.
