Lisa Kappeler being interviewed

“I can’t imagine doing what we do without computers. It’s pretty vital.”

Lisa Kappeler, Bible translator to the Uriay people of Papua New Guinea and translation consultant

How does IT fit into missions?

“I just can’t imagine the amount of time that was spent in making corrections that I do now with one button.”

Technology has transformed Lisa Kappeler’s ministry over her 11 years as a Bible translator among the Uriay people of Papua New Guinea and as a Bible translation consultant.

But it takes IT professionals behind the scenes to allow that “push of a button” to happen.

You, as an IT professional, can help missionaries everyday to:

  • Learn a new language more quickly
  • Understand a foreign culture
  • Translate the Bible faster and accurately
  • Produce Bible curriculum
  • Develop literacy materials
  • Communicate with consultants
  • Equip the church

You can use your IT skills in missions in Canada or overseas as Security and Compliance Administrators, Data and Intelligence Analysts, Network and Systems Engineers, Hardware and Software Technicians, Software Programmers and Developers and Training Specialists and End-User Support.

Lisa concludes, “I can’t imagine doing what we do without computers. It’s pretty vital.”
