We are Tim & Ali Robinson, and we have a son called Dan. We are Elim missionaries working in partnership with Wycliffe Bible Translators UK, whose vision is to see a Bible translated into every language of the world. We both grew up as Wycliffe kids, Ali in Ghana and Tim in Papua New Guinea but we had no idea God would lead us in this direction. After we got married we joined Princes Risborough Elim church and immediately felt part of the family. We quickly got involved in various ministries and continue to be part of the church from thousands of miles away!
Nigeria has a total of 510 languages, over 240 of which don’t have a single word of scripture yet. There is a massive need for Bible translation. In fact, the country has the second biggest need for Bible translation in the world.
Tim is Operations Director for our group. He is responsible for the computer department, finance, the facilities team and project funding. Sometimes it is strange not to be working directly with the projects, but the people Tim's teams are serving are having some sort of impact in around 120 Bible Translation and Language Development projects!
Ali is currently working as a data archivist, trying to keep track of all the information we have about the languages of Nigeria. It involves working with multiple partner organisations and encouraging all the various groups and individuals working on projects to keep submitting information and articles into our global information systems.
