Missionaries Taking God's Word to Those Who Haven't Heard
I grew up in a Christian home. God saved me when I was six, and I have known I was called to the ministry since I was young. I went to Texas Baptist Institute and Seminary right out of high school and earned a Masters of Theological studies.
I interned with Chase Reynolds, a missionary and Bible Translator in Papua, Indonesia, for two months during the summer of 2018. Over time, God assured me of His call for me to be involved in Bible Translation work. Sublett Road Baptist Church voted to be my sending church in 2019, and I began my linguistics and Bible Translation training at Dallas International University (where Chase went) in June 2020.
I will finish my training in the summer of 2022 and do final prep work to leave through the end of the year. If God wills, I will be on the field at the beginning of 2023. God’s word is the foundation for everything God wants to do among a people group, and making it available in a language they understand is critical to the Great Commission. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help take God’s word to those who haven’t heard. God has been narrowing my vision to where He would have me to go. So Sublett Road and I have been praying about a possible opportunity that I have to work in Papua, Indonesia. Please, pray for God’s will and for me in this endeavor.
