John and Rosalie Rentz

  • John and Rosalie Rentz work with Wycliffe Bible Translators who purpose to see the scriptures made available through Bible translation to all peoples in the language they know best. Their focus is translation and literacy.
  • The Rentzes also work with The Mission Society
  • The Rentzes and their two daughters ministered for eight years in the Solomon Islands in the area of Bible translation, supervising the Aiwoo translation project in the Reef Islands, located in Temotu Province.
  • John now serves in Wyclife New Zealand's home office, as Member Care Facilitator.
  • Rosalie teaches Bible-in-School at the local primary school, leads a Bible Study home group, and serves on the Ministry Team at their local church in Thames.
  • There are almost 7000 languages in the world and at present only 429 of them have the complete Bible in their language!
  • There are another 1144 languages that have the New Testament and approximately 850 that have some of the Bible published in their language.
  • The goal of Wycliffe is that by the year 2025 all the remaining languages will have at least been started.
