2 Corinthians 4:5
We are a church-planting family of three working with an unreached newly-engaged people group in East Asia. In 2010, our home church began praying into the night that God would become known throughout this unreached unengaged people group and after a long season of prayer, this East Texas church realized it was their job to be the hands and feet for accomplishing this mission. In 2013, a small group from the church went on a vision trip to try and find this people group hidden in the mountains and after finding them, realized that it wouldn't be possible to 'reach' them without sending someone to live among them. That's where we come in. In 2015, we (D&J) sold everything we own, bought back-packing backpacks, and moved to the heart of rural East Asia. Leaving our home and family to create a new home with a new family.
We are almost 4 years into this journey, finished our language study requirements, and are now living on a farm inside a village. Our family has grown by one, but the Kingdom family has grown by many. We hope to stay here as long as the Father keeps us here.
