Melissa's Story

God’s hand led me to long-term missions when I was 17, standing under a breath-taking display of stars in the heart of Venezuela on my 3rd short-term missions trip. He asked me one question: “Why not?” Why couldn’t I serve Him with my life through missions? Coming up with only excuses and not reasons, I began to pursue a life in missions, including receiving a Bible degree with an emphasis in Missions and doing twelve short-term missions trips before moving to Prague, Czech Republic in 2006.

I met and married my husband in Czech Republic, captured by his heart for the lost in his own country. And we are blessed to be the parents of 3 wonderful daughters.
