Chris & Emily Vickio

Translating the Bible in East Africa

Missionary Family

Chris & Emily work with a team of missionaries and nationals in East Africa, translating the Bible into several local languages that have never had God’s Word before. Chris is the IT specialist for the team, and plays the important role of keeping the team’s computers and networks functional. Emily teaches school for the missionary kids on the team, and is the member care facilitator, providing counseling and encouragement for team members and their families.
