My name is Ryan D. Richie. My wife Nicole and I have been married for 13 years. From January 2007 - March 2012 we served as missionaries in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The Lord has since called us back to the US. For more information, such as doctrine, you can visit my other site here.
I began studying Biblical Greek in the fall of 2009. Before this, in 2007, I began studying translation and linguistics. My passion in linguistics is primarily in the ethnolinguistics or culteral linguistics field, as well as lexical semantics. Seeing and studying these fields in person with living languages has given me a greater desire to know and understand Koine Greek in the New Testament.
