We prayerfully desire to plant a Hindi-speaking church in Asia with a focus on evangelism, discipleship, and solid biblical teaching. Although there are relatively quite a few ministries operating in the city, very few are focused on the masses of people moving from where Hindi is primarily spoken. As a means of entrance to the community, we will start a Christian school offering quality education based on Christian principles. This school will serve as a transformational presence in the community, aiding in establishing relationships with families through which the Gospel can be shared in a meaningful and relevant manner.
We met at Moody Theological Seminary in 2006, were married in 2008, and our family has been growing ever since. From the start, we could sense God bringing us together for His work.
Born in a Christian home, I learned about the Lord from an early age. However, it was not until age 19, when I met my first Christian friend, that my eyes were opened to the truth of the Gospel. After receiving Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, I was baptized. In 2006 God miraculously made a way for me to study at Moody Theological Seminary in Chicago where I completed my MDiv (Pastoral Studies) in 2010. I was blessed to serve as a pastor in inner-city Chicago until September 2013 when, in response to the burden on my heart for Asia, put all efforts toward returning ASAP – for the proclamation of the Gospel!
Born and raised in northern Minnesota, she was blessed to be the daughter of parents who loved the Lord. As a child she “asked Jesus into my heart”, but in her early teen years rebelled against the Lord. By God’s grace He broke through her hard heart through the teaching of His Word at Bible camp. She responded by committing her life to His service. After getting a bachelor’s degree in elementary and middle school education, she went to Chicago to study at Moody before going to the mission field. In 2008 she graduated with a Masters in Ministry. Starting in 2011 her focus turned to being a stay-at-home mom and working in children’s, women’s, and hospitality ministries. God has given her a heart for sharing the Gospel since childhood.
The church in our region is vibrant and growing – God is moving! And yet it is also largely undiscipled, led by untrained pastors, filled with nominal Christians, and plagued with false teaching. Our prayer is to see a movement of Gospel-centered, disciple-making churches rooted in God’s Word among the our people.
