Who We Are
We are Hank and Krista Scott, missionaries with Wycliffe Bible Translators, and we serve at the JAARS office in North Carolina.  We help with the work of Bible translation by using our skills behind the scenes.

As a computer network engineer, I (Hank) lead the Development team for SIL's* Global Technology & Information Services department.  This team develops software and technology products to accelerate Bible translation and language development. We design and build power solutions and provide Internet connectivity for our sites and staff around the world.  We play a key role in researching new technology and applying it to the work of Bible translation and literacy.  By providing new tools and solutions for missionaries their work can be accelerated, making God's Word available in other languages sooner rather than later.

Krista manages the Housing Department at the JAARS center, where missionaries and volunteers may stay when they are in the area for assignments, training, or volunteer work at the JAARS campus.

Our adult children are Amanda and Nick, who are in the early stages of establishing their own careers.

*SIL is an international affiliate of Wycliffe which focuses on minority language development, and provides expert linguistics and translation support and consulting.  Like many other Wycliffe missionaries, Hank is assigned to a role in SIL which has an international reach and focus.
