Kevin and Laurel joined Wycliffe Bible Translators in 1999, and in January 2003 began working on a Bible translation project with the Ixtayutla Mixtec people in Oaxaca Mexico.
Due to a family health crisis, they relocated to Canada in 2006, and have carried on the project primarily through Internet connectivity and periodic trips back to Mexico to work with a team of Mixtec translators.
During their time in Canada, Kevin also began working on a PhD in Linguistics, which he completed in January 2019.
Kevin has now taken on the responsibility of Linguistics Coordinator for Mexico Branch SIL in addition to the Bible translation project.
They are planning to return to Mexico to work more closely with the Mixtec team in the near future. They have three children - Kyle, Gabrielle and Daniela.
