Who we are

My name is Chris Vickio and my wife is Emily. We both grew up in southern Delaware, having apparently met each other as children in nursery at the Lewes Church of Christ (neither of us can remember that far back). It was at that same church that we got married in the summer of 2007. In 2009 we moved to Dallas and joined PBT.


Where we are

We work at the PBT EAB. For the uninitiated, that is the Pioneer Bible Translators East Africa Branch. We joined PBT looking for an opportunity to use our talents and skills in full time ministry overseas. We told them we’d go wherever they needed a teacher and an IT guy. They said Tanzania, and we said OK. So that’s where we are.


Why we are here

It’s pretty simple. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to read or hear the Bible in a language that speaks to their heart. There are a lot of people (over 300,000,000) who can’t do this because they speak a language into which the Bible has not yet been translated. We’re helping to make the Bible available to them.
