Don and Betty
Our God Story
We both accepted Christ as children, and met later in life after God had called each of us to serve him overseas. Don rededicated his life to Jesus and prayed for a God to give him a wife to stand beside him. The next day Betty moved to Edmonton and the rest is history. After getting our degrees, we planted a church in Saskatchewan and then embarked in a 20-year journey serving in Poland. Now we are embarking on an exciting chapter that will take us to the ancient land of Mesopotamia. Our shared passion is seeing disciples developed, empowered and released—to see them succeed in their God-given ministry.
Coming alongside people who have suffered so much, our desire is to demonstrate the love of Jesus to them in word and deed and to show them that they are loved and valued by God. We want to see the gospel take root in their culture and in individual lives.
We have moved from just praying for and teaching others through KAIROS, to going to a least reached people group in the Middle East, we pray that we come as an answer to their prayers. Our current priority is to learn the language, develop relationships within our LRPG and to establish tracks for our team to follow in.
Least-reached People Group (LRPG)
We work with a unique group of LRPG's called the Yazidi. You can learn more about the Yazidi by visiting our LRPG page.
Pray that we gain the language, the trust of the people and the favour of God. Pray for our local churches to gain a passion for reaching the least reached. Pray for an indigenous church to be birthed.
