Jerusalem Bomb Kills Wycliffe Missionary to Togo

Mary Gardner was a single woman who spent the last twenty years in a remote part (Atakpame) of Togo translating the New Testament into the tribal language of Ife.  She was studying Hebrew in Jerusalem when she was killed by a bomb.  Her plans were to return to Togo and translate the Old Testament.

Here’s how one man described her:  “She was a brave, tenacious lady whose incredible achievements in translating and teaching the Bible and putting the local dialect into print for the people of Togo were immense.”

You can read more about her here.  Info on the Ife New Testament Translation dedication here.
