Marc & Joey
MAINLAND SOUTH-EAST ASIA
The Durdin family are currently located in Australia, after two years in South East Asia, where they are completing Bible College and high school for their children. During this period in Australia, Marc and Joey are continuing to work full-time for Wycliffe.
Marc leads a software team who develop "Keyman", a program widely used in Bible translation. Keyman solves the complexities of typing any of the world's language scripts on computers and is especially valuable for the minority languages not currently supported by major software companies. Keyman has enabled hundreds of Bible translations around the world and is a vital tool for literacy and language development in many minority ethnic languages.
Joey travels to South East Asia several times a year to work in development in Maternal and Child Health. She gives Women's Health workshops, Village Birth Attendant training days and upskilling education sessions for national midwives and health professionals in local language. She develops resources for NGOs in local language from her location in Australia and gives support and mentoring to midwives, mothers and babies in country.
