When we first accepted the invitation to visit Choma, Zambia in 2010 and work with music students, we never realized that God had intended this to be our home eight years later. While our mode of ministry has shifted and changed since we first started in 2016, our family has been fighting for justice ever since.
Brad, a music teacher of 15 years, manages information and data gathered through our ministries. Amber, when she isn’t homeschooling, leads the children’s ministries. This includes a weekly program that sees over 300 children every Wednesday and Sunday School. Both of us disciple a number of young people, visit people in the nearby communities, and help host short-term teams.
Our children are Jaedon (2003), Seth (2006), Owen (2008), and Alenia (2011). They have many friends within the church and are active in a local karate class. Their homeschooling also includes cooperative learning with other local missionary families.
We feel entirely humbled, terrified, thrilled and inadequate for this opportunity but we are strengthened by the truth that the Lord will equip those He calls in His way and in His time. As we have seen God working through His Church to transform lives and communities, we can run even harder to see His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
