Love in Many Languages – English, Swahili, Spanish

26 Jun 2024

As a Kenyan and a Mexican heading to mobilise Latin Americans in Mexico, our journey has been and continues to be quite interesting! We met at Bible College here in Australia and both had a strong desire to be used by God to serve in a different country. However, we weren’t sure where would be a good fit for both of us and so we decided to stay in Australia, get married, serve within the local church context and see where God leads. Coming from the Majority World ourselves, both of us have a heart to see the church in the Majority World empowered and equipped to partner with God in His global mission. We are convinced that the global church and global mission will be so much more enriched and effective when Christians in the Majority World are encouraged and enabled to reach their potential in ministry and mission. So, when God presented mission mobilisation in Mexico as an option, it felt like a great first step for us.

Since deciding to take this step, we have seen God provide for us in wonderful ways. As we are expecting our first child before we leave Australia, God has used our local church to care for, love, support and provide for us in ways that have been overwhelmingly generous. As we continue to raise prayer and financial partners these gestures have been an encouragement that God will continue to provide for and care for us every step of the journey. And the journey ahead, even in the next few months, still has many more steps! Our baby is due in August, then we leave Australia in October and head to Kenya to spend time with family before moving to Mexico in January 2025. We will be living in the south of Mexico with family as we complete online training before moving to the north of Mexico later in the year to complete our training at the Pioneers Mexico base.

We would appreciate your prayers for the coming months with the many endings and beginnings that we’re going to experience as we continue to trust God to lead us where he wants!
