A lifetime of mentoring – interview with Dr Katy Barnwell

by Dr Michael Jemphrey

Dr Michael Jemphrey, Translation and Anthropology Consultant, SIL

Dr Katy Barnwell needs no introduction to anyone in the Bible translation world. I first met her when I was a newbie consultant in training in Cote d’Ivoire at a consultant workshop she led in the 1980’s. The way she gently encouraged us and sensitively handled some critical remarks has stayed with me. It was an honour for me to do this interview with her recently. She has returned to the UK and continues to mentor others in West Africa. She is ever ready to learn.

Thanks to Katy for these thoughtful words and inspiring testimony.
