Dr. Chris and Janine Pluger
Chris and Janine Pluger are returning to LBT after a four-year hiatus in Watertown, South Dakota, where Chris has been teaching Spanish and Janine has worked as an administrative assistant at Great Plains Lutheran High School. They previously spent five years in Zambia with the Nsenga Bible Translation Project, which dedicated their New Testament in 2016.
Chris and Janine are making plans to work with multiple Bible translation projects in Ethiopia alongside the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY). Chris will also assist with the education of future Bible translators.
Their son Sean is pursuing an engineering degree at South Dakota School of Mines in Rapid City.
