We train church leaders and medical professionals in Rwanda to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, that the Church in Rwanda would operate as the Body of Christ.
Learning Kinyarwanda, the heart language of all Rwandans
Remembering to keep Christ at the center of all we do: working at the clinic and NCM, worshipping at church, serving our spouses, raising our children.
Nick was raised a Christian and felt a call to be a missionary from an early age. Developing skills in teaching, he knew that this would open doors in any country. Krystal grew up in a non-Christian home. She became a Christian in high school, went on a 6-month mission trip to South Africa and India, and felt called to return to Africa as a nurse.
After being in Rwanda for a few years now, we feel like we are finally doing what God has been preparing us to do for the last 25 years. We feel privileged to partner with others in this work. We work with other missionaries and some amazing Rwandans. And we have partners back in the USA and Canada. They are doing in North America what we cannot, so that we can do in Rwanda what they cannot.
We are excited to see that we will have a ripple effect. Because we are training leaders, and they train their people, we are having an even greater impact.
While our primary work is with church leaders (Nick) and medical professionals (Krystal), we also have a ministry to our partnership team. We are excited that, from Rwanda, through our updates, we get to help people see what God is doing in Rwanda, and how they are involved in that work through their prayers and contributions.
We first served in Rwanda for 9 weeks in 2011 with WorldVenture. Between the two of us, we have traveled as missionaries to Mexico, China, Ukraine, Turkey, South Africa, India, Ghana, and now Rwanda. Nick was a pastor for six years, a teacher for three and a missionary for five. Krystal has been a nurse for 10 years and a missionary for five. Sola Deo Gloria
