Michael and Lynette Wilson are serving with Wycliffe Bible Translators: Michael as a pilot/mechanic and Lynette as a linguist/translator.  After college, Lynette joined Wycliffe and earned a masters degree in linguistics.  She began her first Wycliffe assignment as an associate instructor training other missionaries in the linguistic principles necessary for Bible translation.  Michael became interested in missions during college and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mission aviation. They were married in 2012.

In January 2014, Michael passed the rigorous missionary aviation technical evaluation and joined Wycliffe shortly after.  Lynette finished her teaching responsibilities at the end of March 2014.  After further training and partnership development, their overseas assignment in Australia began in September, 2015.  They began with a year of learning Yol?u Matha languages spoken in some of the remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory.  Since then, Lynette has been helping Yol?u Aboriginal Bible translators edit and check their translations of the Gospel of Mark.  Mike began piloting their branch’s Cessna 182, flying Lynette to remote communities as well as flying Aboriginal translators and other ministry workers to various locations in the Northern Territory.
