Mtt and Cnn were each blessed to grow up in Christian families. In junior high, Mtt went to Forrest Cliff Camp. It was there that he grasped the idea of a personal relationship with God for the first time.
Cnn accepted Christ as a child at a Kids’ Club. It was Christmas time and the teacher explained the Gospel from Jesus’ birth until His resurrection. That night, Cnn prayed with a club leader to accept Christ.
Through short term overseas experiences, and the influence of mentors in their lives, Mtt and Cnn each felt called to cross-cultural work. When they married, it was already on their hearts to serve as international workers.
In 2011, they started preparing to move to Asia to work with the S People, who are over 99% Muslim. In 2012, their twin daughters were born and in January 2013 they moved with their six-month-old girls to Asia.
Prayer is vital to everything we do. Thank you for praying for our family and for the S people we long to see know Christ. Please see our prayer requests above.
Pray that our S People friends would find Jesus – the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Pray that any barriers, misunderstanding, fear, or shame that would hinder our Muslim friends from knowing Christ would be broken down.
Pray that our family would remain faithful to the call God has placed on our lives in the good times and the hard times.
