John and Michaela

Our God Story

Both of us grew up in Christian homes. Michaela was introduced to Jesus and decided she wanted to follow Him at a young age. John’s faith became real and personal in his teenage years. Both of us had an interest in missions from a young age, through hearing international workers share their stories at our churches and reading stories of God’s work internationally. As a couple we were affirmed in our calling overseas while serving in the Silk Road region during our apprenticeship with the C&MA. We believe God is calling us to live as a family-on-mission, to witness to the amazing news of Jesus, and to invite others into the incredible hope found in Him.

Our Vision

"To facilitate nationals in our country coming into relationship with Jesus and discipling them to be Christ-followers who will call others to be Christ followers.  To strengthen existing national churches and to help birth new ones who will reach their own people and those where few or none have heard."

Current Priorities

Our current focus is to learn the local language, build relationships with locals, and make connections with other believers in our city. We’re also asking two specific questions: “God, what have you done here in the past?” and, “God, what do you want to do here going forward and how are you calling us to participate in that?”

Least-reached People Group (LRPG)

We work with a group of LRPG’s from Central Asia.  You can learn more about LRPG’s by visiting our LRPG page.


Pray for us as we learn a new language.

Pray that we are able to show God’s love to the people we encounter.

Pray for us, and our family, as we transition and adjust to a new culture.
