There are many different big moments in people’s lives that gets them really excited. For some people, getting married or having a baby causes them to flood their social media account with the breaking news of excitement. Today we have big news in our life that we want to share!

In September of 2014 Mackenzie moved down to Alpharetta, GA to begin studying missions and start her journey training to be a missionary. In early 2015 she grew a burden for the people of India. On April 3, 2016 I moved down to Alpharetta, GA to begin my journey and preparation to be a missionary.

Thankfully our two journeys merged when we got married last August. Shortly after getting married God started burdening my heart for the people of India. This past March Mackenzie and I, along with James Byrapaka, who I have been discipling for almost a year, started the Desi Bible Fellowship to start reaching Indians in Atlanta. God has blessed us greatly during this time, and we have even seen our first Indian convert through this ministry.

NOW both Mackenzie and I are excited to announce that we have been approved for our internship and will be leaving for India this October! The past two to three years have been building for this point, and we are very excited to take our next step!

To be able to serve on our internship and completing our training for missions, we will need to raise $15,000. I know that this is a large sum of money, but it will cover everything including our airfare, rent, language school, and living expenses. We have prayed and believe that God will provide all of our money by September 21, and I would ask you to prayerfully consider how God could use you to help us complete our training and ultimately see more Indians come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
