Jonathan & Veronica Nicholaides

Career Missionaries since 2013, serving the Pnong people of Cambodia.

Six years ago, God called the Nicholaides family to work for Him in the Asian country of Cambodia. After God provided the funding they needed, Jonathan and Veronica boarded an airplane with their four children, Hannah, Bethany, Enoch and Josiah. Currently they are living in the province of Mondulkiri, a lovely mountainous area on the eastern side of Cambodia. They work with two other missionary families to reach the indigenous Pnong people. John is currently serving as the principal of the Pnong Project’s school.

The Pnong people are animists who live in fear of spirits and worship them. At weddings, funerals, planting time, harvest time, or any other momentous occasion, Pnong people perform rituals in an effort to appease the spirits and avoid calamity. It is sad to see people living in fear. Those who have accepted Jesus don’t suddenly become rich and have easy lives, but their newfound joy and peace are a powerful witness to their communities.

Our whole family is involved in friendship evangelism, connecting with school staff, neighbors, and villagers to develop relationships that give local people opportunities to see Christ’s love. The local school staff are a wonderful group of dedicated Christians who want to share Jesus in the community, too. We are privileged to witness the love and freedom that people, who once lived in darkness, experience through faith in Jesus.

Realizing all was not well, dad, Jonathan, broke into her locked room, and he and Veronica prayed and rebuked the evil spirit in the name of Jesus. Hannah was set free. The story continues….
