Roger & Marilyn Reeck
Roger and Marilyn Reeck, Wycliffe Bible Translators
Roger grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. At a young age he became fascinated with languages. He attended Fort Wayne Bible College and decided to serve the Lord through Bible translation.
Marilyn grew up in Honduras as the child of missionaries. Her parents Archie and Maisie Cameron did church planting there. She met Roger at Fort Wayne Bible College.
They Married in the summer of 1971 and began their first translation work among the Zapotec Indian people of Mexico. Their four daughters were born there.
In 1990 they left Mexico and moved the family to Honduras and began translation work among the Garifuna people. The Garifunas already had the New Testament but needed the complete Bible. The Old Testament translation was completed a number of years ago, and so the work has shifted to the teaching and use of the Scriptures in the Garifuna language.
At the moment Roger and Marilyn are basing out of Honduras. They continue to work toward the goal of the widespread use of the Garifuna Bible. They now work as consultants and are in high demand. They travel around the world to ensure that the best possible translations are made in order to protect God's Word. They go to places like Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Venezuela, Honduras, Brazil, and Colombia.
Roger and Marilyn Reeck have now been serving the Lord with Wycliffe Bible Translators for 45 years.
