Tom and Irene Hodges serve in Bible Translation technology. Following 14 years in Europe and 18 at HQ, Tom devoted ten of his 53 years of missionary service to the JAARS Center in North Carolina. As a research assistant, computer programmer, and tester, he helped develop software tools for translators worldwide. Following heart problems, he continues to work from home on speech analysis research and testing to help speed Bible translation.
Personal witnessing everywhere is Tom’s delight, often using his tract to start conversations: ‘Atheist Engineer’s Flight Towards Suicide’. It’s currently in its 12th printing. The tract carries a link to a free e-book of his testimony about how he, a former; 11-year atheist, found Christ and was called into missionary service: ‘Atheist Engineer Finds God’s Real!.
