Why Did We Become Missionaries?

God created human beings to glorify Him as we fulfill His purposes for us. His character can be seen, in part, by all mankind through His handiwork of creation. God has designed us to have a personal relationship with Him, and to that end He revealed Himself to us in Scripture so that we can respond in faith to Christ’s redemptive work on the Cross. Salvation is a free gift of God’s grace to ALL men, but there are so many who don’t know that!

Among the 6000+ distinct languages that are currently spoken around the world, approximately 3000 people groups lack even a part of Scripture in their own language. God dearly loves all people, and it important that all of us have the opportunity to hear God’s communication to us in the language of our hearts. As teenagers, both of us sensed a special calling on our lives. We became burdened to get involved in showing that God is accessible, in places where His Word currently was not. God has worked in our lives over many years (read our stories if you haven’t yet!) drawing us closer to Himself in the process.

We welcome your prayers and participation. And we challenge you to engage in God’s mission to build His Church around the world, either through our work in Vanuatu or elsewhere—it’s a privilege!
