    Biography:

    Bob and Mary met at Moody Bible Institute. Following marriage and completion of their degrees they served with Wycliffe in Mexico and Colombia. In 1970 they arrived in Panama to begin work with the Buglere people, a previously non-evangelized group without written language. The first edition of the Buglere New Testament was published in 1988 and a reprint in 2008. Subsequently many additional biblical materials have been published, including the JESUS film, an audio recording of the Buglere New Testament, a hymnbook, and literacy materials. Preparation of additional materials is ongoing as well as encouragement of the leadership who serve in the scattered Buglere churches.

    Additionally, the Gunns are involved in a local bilingual church in Panama City where their son, Steve, is the pastor, and in outreach to a marginal community within Panama City.
