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.

Pain and Gain

When we push through hard times and come out the other side, we are stronger and healthier, and we can ride the high of knowing that God has provided for us yet again.

Sovath’s Story

Sovath learned about Jesus through missionaries in the refugee camp. Now, Eric and I want to go back and give other Cambodians like my dad, Sovath, the chance to learn about Jesus and to find hope in His gospel.

Valuing the Right Thing

We can learn from Jesus and the Cambodians: take life as it comes and value personal encounters over personal agendas.
