Brian: I was a small boy living with my parents in the jungles of Brazil, and one afternoon my mother was teaching the local indigenous children the gospel of grace. During the lesson, I realized my own lost state and trusted Christ as my Saviour.
Sherri: As a child going to Sunday school and church every Sunday was a part of our weekly routine. At 13 I realized that I know about Jesus’ provision of salvation, but I had never trusted Jesus as my own personal Saviour, so one Sunday morning as my Pastor, Jack Hannah, presented the gospel I put my faith in Jesus.
God brought our paths together in 1984 and since then we have been on a journey together with God to lift Him up and make Him known. Bible teaching, Bible translation, and Discipling describes our passion and ministry at home and abroad. God gave us the privilege of living in Brazil for many years where we worked with the Yanomami in Northern Brazil. We also spent time in Southern Brazil training national Brazilians to do cross-cultural church planting.
For a number of years we also had the privilege of Pastoring our home church in Canada. God has led us back into missions where we get to be a part of: Training the Next Generation; Teaching God’s Word; and Bible Translation. We consider it an honour and privilege to serve God wherever He chooses to place us.
