Ray has been a teacher at the Training Center since 2012 where he mostly concentrates on teaching linguistics related topics like Language Discovery (TTC) and Discover Your Language, where participants/students learn about grammatical structures in their languages that help them with the translation process. Before coming to Ukarumpa, Ray received a Masters degree in Linguistics and was involved in completing a New Testament translation project in Guyana, South America. Ray loves the people of PNG and desires to see more people grow in their experience with God’s Word in the languages that speak best to their hearts.
