Discovery has two tracks:
Bible Translation/Linguistics
If you're interested in translation, literacy or Scripture engagement, you'll typically spend about half your time with a translation team. It may be in a village, town or city. You'll observe their work and participate in daily life. You'll work with a mother-tongue language helper to learn some basic conversation.

Hands-On Work/Support Role
If you have other interests, you can get hands-on mission experience in your area of expertise. You'll spend most of your time working in a support role that puts your skills to good use (e.g., computers, education, media, accounting, construction). You'll also have an opportunity to see translation work in progress and do some language learning. You'll be matched with an assignment designed to use your skills and help you discover how your gifts and abilities can further the work of Bible translation.
