Ray & Dee Stegeman
Missionaries in USA/Papua New Guinea
Ray & Dee Stegeman, Wycliffe Bible Translators, worked among the Akawaio Amerindians in Guyana, South America for 15 years (1995-2009), which culminated in the publication and distribution of the Akawaio New Testament. Since then, they have been using their translation expertise to bring consistency and naturalness to many translation projects in Papua New Guinea - a country of unparalleled linguistic diversity, with over 800 languages among 7 million people. Ray is active in teaching courses at the Training Center at Ukarumpa while Dee teaches MKs at the mission school.
Dee loves to read, do cross-stitch, play games, do puzzles and socialize, and Ray really loves to collect cancelled postage stamps from around the world. He is a runner and a cyclist, and he also loves to read.
New Life for Mothers & Children
Organization helping at risk mothers
New Life Center For Mothers and Children is an amazing place that helps mothers and their children to begin the process of transitioning back into mainstream society after recovering from drug or alcohol addictions. Once a woman has completed the program of New Life For Girls, she can be considered for acceptance at the Mothers and Children Center. This provides a critical step in the complete and life changing restoration of these women.
