Nelson & Marilyn Blank with Wycliffe Bible Translators
Nelson and Marilyn Blank joined Wycliffe Bible Translators in 1989 and served first in Papua New Guinea. Nelson used his electronics training to repair equipment like laptop computers and two-way radios used by the translators in their villages. In addition to being a wife and mother, Marilyn also served as librarian at Ukarumna International School where their children attended. In 2002, the Blanks returned to the US and settled in Pennsylvania where they serve together providing missionary member care by encouraging, equipping and enabling Wycliffe missionaries around the world. They provide resources, advice and counsel to missionary families, couples and singles who are on furlough or who are in the field.
