Year service began with BWM – 2002
Family: Mike and Hannah were married on February 6, 1999. We have four children: Stephen (16), Joshua (13), Caroline (11), and Julia (9)
Testimony: I was saved at the age of 4. I recognized my need of a Savior and trusted in Christ at that early age. I was baptized at the age of 9. As a teenager, I had the privilege of being with my family as missionaries in central Brazil. When I was a freshman in college, I felt that the Lord would have me to go into full-time vocation ministry. I surrendered to go to the mission field at that time. At the end of my graduate school training, I met my wife Hannah. We were married on February 6, 1999. We served in our local church in Greenville, SC for a number of years, gaining ministry experience. We applied and were accepted as BWM missionaries to Brazil in 2002.
Service: We served in Brazil from May 2006 until May 2016. We thank the Lord for the time of service that we had in Brazil. During that time in Porto Alegre we were able to help nationalize a local church, direct and teach in a Bible Seminary, help start another local church, as well as evangelize the lost and disciple new believers. The Lord has directed our steps to now serve as field administrator for Latin America and South America. We are grateful for the opportunity to be servants to our missionaries, their churches, and our Lord in this capacity.
