Ask our Missionaries (AoM):
Tell us about your call to missions / ministry!
Wow, OK! In 2004, we lived in the Seattle area. We both had great careers (Gary was a National Manager for the PowerBar division of Nestle, Paula was a NeuroDiagnostic Technologist at Evergreen Hospital). We had just purchased our brand new “dream” home and a new “dream” car. We had great friends and were leaders in the Marriage MInistry group at Eastside Church. We were living the “American Dream”. Then, we went to Thailand for a vacation…
To make a long story short, we both felt led by the Holy Spirit to quit our jobs, sell our home and car, and move to Thailand to work as Missionaries. In 2005, we did it! For 2 years we worked with adults, but in 2007, we realized that our “calling” was to work with children. Now, we feel like we are living “God’s Dream” for us! It’s great!
