My wife and I are church planting missionaries in Burkina Faso, West Africa. We were married in July of 2015 and immediately started preparing to start deputation. We started deputation in 2016 and were ready to leave for Burkina Faso by 2018. We spent the next 2 years working alongside veteran missionary Keith Shumaker. We learned the language and culture as much as we could about starting churches in West Africa. We are excited to be getting ready to start our first church in 2021.
