A long time ago, we decided we would live our lives open handed - meaning we would be willing to do whatever God would ask of us. From living in a retirement center with a 100+ senior citizens, to packing up our lives to move to the Amazon, we trust that God is writing a better story than we ever could. It pays to live life in submission to Him. 

Our Mission

Building churches for the unreached and the overlooked. 

In the Amazon basin we work with missionary teams to empower local pastors, so that the gospel may reach the many tribes in the area. We specifically will work with the Shuar, a native tribe to Ecuador and Peru, and seek to plant among them 100 churches in the next 10 years. Along with planting churches, our heart is to educate women and children, teach children about Jesus through VBS, and run humanitarian projects that provide clean water for the local people.


Another big heartbeat of our ministry here in Ecuador is the Hope House, a home for 50+ girls, ages 8-21. The Hope House is for girls looking for more than just a place to stay, but a place to call home and find hope. The rude reality for many girls in the jungle is marriage at 12 years old, abuse and an education that stops in elementary school. It’s here we want to give every girl the opportunity for a thriving future through education, life skills, and eternal hope.

We are immobile and unable to accomplish that which the Lord has for us without prayer. We truly covet your prayers and do not take them lightly. Please prioritize us in prayer first and foremost, for our ministry with the people of Ecuador, the Shuar and also for the health and safety of our family.


Would you consider being our financial partners in ministry? God does not call everyone to full-time foreign missions, but with your help, we are able to continually answer this call in our lives. We are still looking for partners to commit to supporting us every month to provide for our regular living and ministry expenses. One-time gifts are also appreciated.

He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.
