Questions & Answers
What were the highlights of your quizzing years?

Making individual finals as YTR (1987) and as STV (1989, 1990).

How did quizzing affect you as a teen?

It gave me the incentive to study the Scriptures seriously on my own and gave me a hunger to know God and His Word.

What difference has quizzing made in your life to this day?

I am sure Bible quizzing is the main reason that I have ended up as a Bible translator. My passion for the Word of God was kindled as a young man memorizing chapters for quizzing. My desire to help others grow in their faith was developed while serving as a coach while in college. My analytical skills in analyzing meaning versus form were developed as a quizmaster.

Are you presently involved in Bible quizzing?

I am helping coordinate Free Methodist Bible quizzing in the Philippines and also starting a different form of Bible quizzing for the Ayta Mag-Indi people of the Philippines.

How are you actively serving the Lord?

I serve with Wycliffe Bible Translators as a Bible Translation Consultant. I am also Translation Coordinator for the Ayta cluster where I have active involvement in working with two committees (Ayta Mag-Indi and Ayta Abellen) of Mother tongue translators who are translating the New Testament and other Scripture materials into their own languages.
