As a Church, we at RiverLakes are committed to participating in the fulfillment of the "Great Commission" (Matt. 28:18-20). We understand this to mean the discipling of people in every culture through persuading them to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and gathering them into congregations where they can learn to obey all that Jesus has commanded. This we do while not neglecting to show Christian love through the meeting of other human needs.
Melanie is excited to be involved with Wycliffe's work on two levels. Part of the time she promotes Scripture Use in the mother tongue languages among the indigenous churches in Kenya. She also serves on teams that equip Africans to be efficient translators of God's Word and effective teachers so that God's Word impacts lives in a powerful way.
