We have been serving as missionaries in Thailand since November of 2012, but our journey to missions started long before then. Several years prior I was made aware of the incredible needs of the unreached world and for the first time in my life had an inkling that God may be calling me to GO! About a year later I began dating my future wife. We were actively involved in a church plant project in Arkadelphia, AR and eventually began contemplating long term mission service. After being married for about 4 months we decided to apply with Adventist Frontier Missions in 2009. For the next couple of years we wrestled with whether or not God was truly calling us overseas. Finally after a week of fasting and prayer in the spring of 2011 we surrendered fully to the Lord and told Him that we were willing to go wherever He may send us, and that we would go as far forward as He led.
God led us to Khon Kaen Thailand where we have been living since 2014. We are working with a committed team of people to establish a strong church in a growing city with no SDA presence. Although we are not Music teachers, we work with a Peace Music Academy to build relationships and to offer services to the public. We also work closely with a local SDA pastor to plan evangelistic events and outreach endeavors. Our goal is to establish a strong national church body with the burden to conduct effective city ministry based off of Biblical and Spirit of Prophecy principles.
