Dear Friends and Family

We would love to share with you an exciting opportunity that God has opened for us. After a lot of prayer we have a accepted a ministry position to serve in Madrid, Spain beginning in August through a program called Mission Corps. It is such an amazing opportunity that God has blessed us with and we are humbled by it. As we serve in Spain we will be working mainly in the area of youth ministry, which is a strong passion of ours, while also being of support to our churches in Spain. Mission Corps is a program through our church denomination that sends people who will raise their own support to sustain themselves in ministry. We are hoping to serve in Spain for a year or more if God permits.

We anticipate this to be a challenging yet hopeful time because of the perception of the church in Europe. We would like to ask you for your support, first and foremost through prayer. Please pray that God would give us guidance, wisdom, strength during times when we may feel isolated or homesick and that we may rely on God and not ourselves. We believe that as you lift us up in prayer, we will be strengthened and encouraged to serve God whole-heartedly.

Another way you can help us is through financial support. If you feel led to help us in this way, there are few options to make contributions.

1) For a tax deductible donation you can contribute online through our church’s website. These donations can be used for certain ministry expenses such as food, housing, transportation, etc. You can click here or copy and paste the following address:

2) The second is sending contributions directly to us personally, which can be used for any expenses. Personal contributions are not tax deductible but will be available for our immediate use once received. Email us at or send us a message through Facebook if you are interested in doing so.

We are blessed to have such a supportive community of friends and family and look forward to sharing this journey with you!!!


Also, keep checking our blog as we will update during our time in Spain!!!
