WHERE DO WE WORK?

LBT serves on five continents with over 50 different language groups. We have work in Asia Area, Botswana, Cameroon, Canada, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, Mexico, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Sierra Leone, South Africa, South America, Togo, Zambia, and the United States. Our missionaries are from Canada and the U.S.

Most of our missionaries, serving in advisory roles, train and assist national translators and literacy workers. Others serve in support roles, such as mission coordinator or computer specialist.

Below is the list of countries where we have worked or are currently working. In some instances, such as Iraq, our missionaries are working with displaced language communities and are not resident in the country.

    English and 33 other languages are spoken in Liberia. Even though civil conflict has forced LBT to evacuate its missionaries from Liberia three times since 1989, God has enabled the work to continue. LBT missionaries assigned to Liberia are based outside the country. During regular visits, they consult with their indigenous co-workers and church leaders and provide literacy and computer training and program guidance.
