barkman-2012Wycliffe Bible Translators

Keith was born in Oklahoma and Heidi was born to missionary parents in Brazil. Today, they work in Brazil, translating the Bible for a particular people group. This group has only a handful of believers scattered in different places. More than a decade ago someone else had translated the New Testament for this people group and published it. However, it had not been accepted by many villages because it was not understood.
Keith and Heidi have spent years working on an alternative translation. Now t
hey are nearing the finish of the New Testament. At the beginning of the 2016, they plan to do a complete read through of the whole New Testament with a group of believers and then record a portion. They will also be dialoguing with the believers about a publication strategy for the New Testament.
Keith and Heidi have two children.
