Laszlo grew up on her grandparent’s farm in Valparaiso, Ind. After receiving her bachelors from Bryan College in Tennessee and an MS from Indiana University, she entered the teaching profession for a brief time before joining Wycliffe Bible Translators.
Beginning in 1967, Marilyn moved to Papua, New Guinea, to work and live with the Sepik Iwam, a remote group of 2,500 living in the Hauna village in the South Pacific islands. In 1990, with the help of her sister, Marilyn completed the first New Testament in the Sepik Iwam tongue.
A sought-after speaker and guest of the Billy Graham Crusade, Laszlo continues to share her story. She now serves Wycliffe USA as a national speaker for missions conferences, college chapels, youth conferences, churches and camps, sharing the story of translators around the world.
The public is cordially invited to hear Laszlo several times during this week of services. The admission free services will be conducted on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 10 a.m. in Reardon Auditorium and again at 7 p.m. in Park Place Church of God.
