Our Call to Wales:
We soon surrendered to be missionaries after being impacted by a missions trip to the United Kingdom, a missions conference, and guest missionary speakers. In the summer of 2002, we moved to Springfield, Missouri and enrolled at Baptist Bible College. In 2004 God made it possible for us to go on our second missions trip to the U.K. After graduating from BBC in May of 2005, we were brought on staff as Missionary Interns at Cherry Street Baptist Church, Springfield, Missouri, under Senior Pastor Ken Gillming. In 2008 we were approved as BBFI Career Missionaries to the country of Wales. While serving in Wales, we worked alongside two veteran missionary families, serving in numerous areas of ministry. We were blessed to see many people come to Christ.
In 2012 we sensed God directing us back to the United States. Though we could not fully understand all that God was doing, we knew He wanted us to return home. After a time of intense prayer and counsel, we followed God’s lead. Once we returned, we were asked to be on staff at our Sending Church, Cherry Street Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Dennis Jennings. While on staff at CSBC, God allowed us to be involved in a multitude of ministries where we have leanred so much about leadership and administration. During our time there, God also made it clear that He still had plans for us to be missionaires and He wanted us to return to Wales. It’s our goal to take all that we learned from our first opportunity to serve in Wales as well as all God has taught us during these past four years at CSBC and return to the country God has called us to.
