Missions

matiasbuldainPastor Matias Buldain, who lives in Argentina with his wife Nerina and their daughter Betsi,  teaches in the Pastor Training Center near Buenos Aires, Argentina (Facebook page). The center trains and equips indigenous pastors to preach the gospel and plant biblical New Testament churches in the local region. We periodically send members of our leadership team to work with Pastor Buldain and teach in their churches and Bible study groups (photo gallery and updates from Pastor Buldain).

IMG_1136Chris and Debbie Klynstra, along with their 2 children (Sarah and Ben), live and serve in Indonesia under Missionary Aviation Fellowship.  They live in Wimena, Papua, where the only way in and out is by air.  Chris is the head mechanic and leader at the field.  Debbie is currently applying for a teaching visa, a new requirement, so that she is able to continue teaching Bible in school.  

 

Bruce and Karen Duell live and serve the Lord in the inner city of Denver, Colorado.  They have been ministering for over 30 years to the urban, poor, homeless, mentally disabled, and handicapped of the city.  They open up their home to feed those in need, share the Gospel, and disciple other believers.  Karen is also on staff at Denver's International High School, which has opened the door to minister to the students, leading to spiritual fruit.

Mark and Ruth Harbour have been faithfully serving in Taiwan for over 30 years, first with SEND International and more recently with like-minded Taiwanese nationals with a heart for church planting.  They recently launched "Vision 119" which calls for 119 workers to plant 60 churches along the two main highways that span the west coast of Taiwan...Route's 1 and 19.  Ironically, 1-9-9 is Taiwan's equivalent of America's "emergency 911" phone number - lending a sense of urgency to this important initiative.

Todd and Julie Hendry, along with their 4 children (Michaela, Sammy, Lilianne, and Levi), are church planters in Croata, Brazil.  Their goal is to evangelize and disciple those who come to faith, equipping them to in turn disciple others and plant other churches.  They plan on remaining in the field until the church is planted and well established.

Randy and Pam Schmidt, along with their 3 boys (Matthias, Myles, and Micah), live in Taichung, Taiwan where Randy teaches at Morrison Academy, a fully accredited, international, Christian school.  Many of the students attending this school have never heard the name of Jesus.  All enrolled students must take classes in Bible, thereby giving Randy the opportunity to share the Gospel with all the students.
