Linnea Boese has spent most of her life in Africa. She grew up there as the daughter of medical missionaries. Dr. Dwight and Barbara Slater, and she and her husband Glenn worked in northern Côte d’Ivoire as missionaries with WorldVenture for 40 years. Her ministry focused mainly on linguistics and partnering with a team in Bible translation for the least-reached Nyarafolo people. The New Testament, Pentateuch and Psalms are now in print, in Nyarafolo!
In order to be equipped for this project, Linnea added an M.A. in linguistics and an M.Div. to her B.A. in journalism. She truly loves words, especially the Word.
During the journey she has found herself responding most readily to what the Lord is saying by picking up her pen. Now retired and living in Detroit, a current goal is to “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done”(Ps 78:4 NIV).
