Deon & Rene Theunissen

*Career missionaries since 2014, now serving the Pnong Project.

We are the Theunissens, born and bred in South African. We have three happy God-fearing children, all with their own careers who live in South Africa. We were both called to be medical missionaries at a camp meeting in South Africa in 2008. We decided to wait until our children finished high school when we applied to AFM.

Frontier Stories

Through the Lens of Providence

As I continued on my journey, the words of a hymn echoed in my mind, a reminder of the unwavering faith that sustains me: “To the cross, I cling, my hope restored.”

The Flip-Flop Epiphany

Life is a glorious, messy, flip-flop-flinging adventure. Embrace it, laugh and hold on tight.

Corner of My Eye

I pray that as our shadows fall on someone today, they will be shadows of healing, peace, and love, much as the disciple Peter casts in the book Acts.

Up, Up and Away

I pray that by this experience, the boys will learn how to follow God’s instructions as He bids them, “Follow Me.”
