Petr and Celst
Our God Story
We desire to love these immigrants as Christ has commanded us to.
Petr grew up in South America and observed his parent’s lives as international workers. Celst’s roots are in Alberta. After a re-encounter with God, Celst began teaching in Cote d’Ivoire. Petr was working as a coach in Canada when they met during one of Celst’s home assignments. As their relationship progressed, they began to consider how to use their gifts to best honour God as a couple.
Petr and Celst spent two four-year terms in North Africa. Petr worked in sports and Celst taught and loved her neighbours. Recently, they made the difficult decision to relocate to Europe, where they will serve immigrants and refugees from North Africa. The work will include helping immigrants with language learning, literacy, social assistance, and sports opportunities for underprivileged immigrant youth.
What Petr and Celst love about being international workers is being able to show love to people who have never been cared for and to be able to tell people that they do it because they are followers of Jesus.
We desire to build relationships that can stand the weight of the gospel. At the same time we desire to be a blessing to the community and culture in which we live, serving as lights that point towards Jesus, in a land that has agressively discarded Christianity.
There are opportunities for short-term teams to visit Spain.

Least-reached People Group (LRPG)
We work with a unique group of LRPG’s called European and North African.
Pray that God would direct and lead us as we seek out mininstry opportunities and that our efforts would be in the place He desires. Pray for divine appointments to meet people that have open hearts and are seeking answers. Pray for the friends and other people in our sphere of influence would see Christ in us and would be moved to ask questions about our faith.
