“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19,20

Missions to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ is our family’s heart. Whether we do that in the workplace, online or in the fields of various nations, we are called to go and make disciples.  

As parents, our desire is to equip our children, and our children’s children, to serve and to love others. The reason is simple: serving in missions across the world has opened our eyes, our hearts and our minds.  Our prayer is that missions transforms our children the same way that they did Nicole and I.

Follow along as we share our experiences of serving in the mission field; at home or abroad.
