Southeast Asia Missionaries

The call of God, and how He brought us to this place


Who We Are

We’re Chad and Mary. We have been married for over 18 years, and have been blessed with three girls. We are passionate about reaching people with the Good News, training people so that they can continue growing in their relationship with Jesus, and helping people discern their spiritual gifts.

We sensed the Lord calling us into full time ministry in 2012. We began praying and asking God what this would look like as we didn’t want to get ahead of God. After seeking wise counsel from trusted friends and having some pretty amazing dreams, we sensed that we were being called to serve in missions. Over the last two years, we started selling some of our belongings, trusting God more than ever, and focusing our prayers on where specifically God was leading us. In 2017, it became very apparent of the exact location that we are to serve. It has been an exciting season of preparation as we have seen so much alignment to what God has spoken to us. So, after six years of seeking God’s will for where, what, and how, we are certain that God is calling us to serve in SE Asia.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

But blessed are those who trust in the LORD, and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
