When we met at a Bible School in southern Germany fourteen years ago we both had it on our hearts to do God’s will no matter where that might take us. Soon we realized that we could be a great team and that we wanted to spend our lives serving God together. We got married in 2004 and it was also around that time that we first learned about New Tribes Mission when a missionary came to share at Markus’ Bible College. The way New Tribes Mission goes about planting tribal churches, their cultural sensitivity and their goal of working themselves out of a job in the tribal churches really caught our attention.
We both liked the thought of working with the least reached people that do not yet access to the gospel in their heart language.
After Bible School, University, working in youth ministry and growing as a family we finally stepped out in faith and started training with NTM. We have learned a lot about reaching the unreached and the methods New Tribes Mission uses during the 18 months of missionary training in Ontario. Learning more about core ideas like the chronological teaching through the Bible, literacy programs and training locals to become leaders have confirmed our decision to work with NTM. God has laid on our hearts that we can be obedient to the great commission through tribal church planting. Together with our five children we plan to serve God in Tanzania, South East Africa. We are excited to see God at work to bring us there! God is faithful and doing amazing things. Join in the adventure!
