New Missionaries to the Middle East

These new missionaries to the Middle East* received their call after his recent trip to the Middle East. He has unique skills in media, which he used to help a media ministry serving that area of the world. When asked about serving as a full-time missionary, he did not believe his family would be open to this change. Much to his surprise, God was already at work in the lives of each member of his family. When he presented the opportunity to his family, they all responded with an immediate and resounding “YES!” This family will serve in a specialized media ministry, producing evangelistic and discipleship media which can be broadcast in several creative access countries. Their story has unfolded in a powerful way the last few months. You will want to hear it from them directly.
