Jenna grew up in Paraguay, South America, as a missionary kid. The Lord called her into missions, giving her a burden for Africa, where her grandparents served for over 60 years. After Bible college and a short-term missionary opportunity, she completed a one-year program at a Bible translation training school. Jim grew up in Ohio, attended a Christian school, and then went to Bible college. After serving as a short-term missionary, the Lord led Jim and Jenna together; they were married in 2000. The Wrights served for eight years with two other missionary families in northern Cameroon until terrorism forced out foreigners. However, Bible translation involvement there connected the Wrights to Bibles International, the Bible Society of Baptist Mid-Missions. Jenna applies her Spanish knowledge and writing skills while Jim is training as a translation consultant. Jim and Jenna reside with their four children in West Michigan.
