Eric & Carly Tirado

Missionaries to the Great River People of SE Asia since 2017.

Eric and Carly have an undeniable passion for Cambodia. Mission work in Cambodia has been embedded into their relationship since they first saw a future together, and, now married, they are committed to serving in Cambodia indefinitely as God holds the doors open.

Carly’s father is a Cambodian who learned of Christ through the work of missionaries. In high school, Carly felt a strong calling to be a missionary to her father’s land. She studied nursing and worked in the ER in preparation to better meet the physical needs of the people she knew she would one day serve.

While in college, she met Eric, a designer and filmmaker by profession, who also had served in Bible work, evangelism and literature evangelism for more than five years. He has a love for building strong relationships and leading people to a loving relationship with Christ. His experience co-laboring with a loving, almighty God has left him enamored with God and devoted to serving Him for the rest of his life.

They look forward to using their passions in medical work and discipleship to minister to the needs of the Great River people and leading them to experience the love, joy and peace that is found in Christ. An affirming goal for them would be to see the first indigenous group of believers making disciples and multiplying into four to five new generations of believers within 10 years. Pray for them to be clay in the Potter’s hands, molded daily into effective vessels of His Glory through the unforeseen challenges and circumstances ahead.

Smoothies and the Prophet Elijah

Sometimes we can be so paralyzed, wanting to do things perfectly, that we don’t do anything at all. Please join me in praying that Hana and her friends encounter Jesus, the true God, whenever they enter our home.

The Burden Bearer

We are still learning over and again not to rely on our own strength but to guide others toward Christ, the infinite source of strength.

Oh, how I look forward to when I can relax in the embrace of my Heavenly Father, “all cozy-up,” and finally be truly “home-home.”
