Chicago and beyond

After living in SE Asia since 1995, training, discipling, and encouraging Southeast Asian Christians to reach out to their Muslim neighbors, this family has relocated to the Chicagoland area to reach out to the 500,000 Muslims living there. They continue to also disciple Muslim background Christians in SE Asia through regular trainings and trips. Their goal is that churches are planted, and ultimately, that Christ's name is praised and worshipped among the Muslim people of Southeast Asia and in the Chicagoland area.
