Russ- Young national leaders are being challenged to work together to reach the least reached nations through mentoring and training. Ramona-seeing young Filipinos catch the vision for the nations!
I chose “a global nomad” to describe me (Russ) as my life has centered around many cultures and people groups. Being raised in the Philippines and having ministered in 40 nations, I sometimes experience an identity crisis! Within WorldVenture I have had 4 distinct ministry focuses which has led me to this passion to see ALL people groups (ethne) be reached with the gospel. Through consulting and training, I have had the privilege of seeing God at work in small and big ways: from amazing answers to prayer during a standstill in a large gathering to stories of restoration among individuals and organizations.
I (Ramona) am just an “ok” (ordinary kid) married to a missions practitioner. Through the years, after raising four sons and now having 10 grandchildren, I discovered new gifts and visions for my life as I helped “birth” first, 180 Degrees in 2001 and then GO TEAM in 2014. Both groups focus on “hands on and get dirty” direct experience working with Muslim communities through tutoring, community helps, and building friendships.
