Bryan & Rachel Smith


Bryan and Rachel Smith serve with Wycliffe. Originally they worked in analyzing languages that have not yet had the Bible made available. With the birth of their first child, they transitioned to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, where Bryan taught various classes at a school for missionary children.  In 2015, the Smiths transitioned to Cameroon where Bryan teaches at an international school for missionary children.

Bryan grew up near Chicago, and Rachel (née Friehauf) grew up in Vancouver, and was active with her family at Glenwood. They met at the Summer Institute of Linguistics when both were preparing for global ministry with Wycliffe's translation work. Bryan and Rachel have three sons and a daughter.
