Least-Reached People Group
We are Cor and Shelley Peters. We have been married for 25 years with three adult children, two girls then a boy; Jenessa, Bryttani (husband Jonathan) and Taylor. We are preparing to move to Thailand where we will become the managing couple of the Alliance Mission Home Bangkok.
Cor is the more reserved and analytical half while Shelley is the highly creative and dynamic one.
We love to travel – our favorite destination over the past 10-12 years being the Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
We love to rest – we often joke that we are good at doing nothing and want to help others learn to do the same (while on vacation of course).
We love to be together – we simply just enjoying our time together, no matter what we are up to.
We love God and His direction in our lives – our individual stories, leading up to our meeting, are quite opposite of one another. We see how God prepared us for one another, how we are a great match together, and now how we will be able to do ministry and serve others together.
We have been a part of the Deer Park Alliance Church in Red Deer, Alberta for the past 24 years.
