I was born into a Christian home, but did not make Jesus my personal Savior until I was sixteen.
I knew from the time I was thirteen that I was to be a missionary. During my teens and early twenties, I was able to go on six different mission trips, three of which were long term. On each trip, God confirmed more and more His call on my life.
I graduated and received my Bachelors in Biblical Studies after high school.
I then went on to be a single missionary to South Africa. I raised my own support and lived there for eight months. What I did not know at the time, was that God was preparing my heart for missions on the continent of Africa. I left a part of my heart there upon leaving.
Six weeks after I returned home from Africa, I was presented with two opportunities: a relationship with my now husband and furthering my education in missions via an internship, which I was able to do right alongside Adam.
I am so excited to be returning to Africa! God is going to do great things!
I was saved at the age of 16 and surrendered to the ministry soon thereafter.
Shortly after graduating high school, I enrolled in Bible College. While there, my missions professor began to encourage me to consider being a missionary. It was during my sophomore year of Bible College that God cemented in my heart and mind His plan for my life. I surrendered to missions that year and have been preparing for and working toward that call since that year.
In Spring of 2017 I moved to Georgia and spent a couple of years learning how to become a missionary, how to train leaders and how to build a strong ministry.
I met my wife (Angel) in March of 2018 and we were married in May of 2019. We then began deputation in January of 2020.
In March 2018, a mutual friend of ours told us that she wanted to introduce us to each other. We met in April, and soon began dating long-distance. In June of that year, Angel moved down from New York and began the same training that Adam was involved in.
In December of that year, we were engaged and then married in May of 2019. We knew that God had called us to foreign missions but didn't know exactly where we would end up.
We started deputation in January of 2020 and have been full-time since then. While the last 2 years have been full of uncertainties, one thing has remained unchanged: God always provides.
Through some amazing circumstances, God allowed us to meet a couple who are veteran missionaries to Togo. We were able to spend a week with them in Togo and to see the ministries and work there. It was during this week that God began to burden our heart for this country and we knew this is where God was leading us. We expectantly look forward to the great things God will do in the country of Togo!
