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.

The Greatest Textbook

Azim and I have been studying Khmer for eight to ten hours every week since April, and it has given us plenty of opportunities to talk about God and build a strong friendship.

We still miss our friends back in America, but God has provided us with companions to help us not be so lonely in our new home, and that is a gift.

Reading with Azim

Though Azim still considers himself a Muslim, he loves reading the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is working, and I am just trying to keep up.

Two Feet, Four Knees

We might only have two working feet between us, but we have four working knees that can still kneel before God and ask for His guidance, patience, wisdom and protection.

Broken Feet

Mission work carries on. There is much work I can still do while off my feet, and the change of life also brought new opportunities to make friends, learn new vocabulary and speak of God’s love.
