Our Call to the Middle East began over 16 years ago. It all started as Lisa grew up at Forest Hill Church under the teaching of David Chadwick and committed her life to missions on a youth mission’s trip in 1989. Lance attended FHC while attending UNCC and a common friend introduced them as both having an interest in missions, which resulted in their marriage (also at FHC). In 2001, they headed to the Middle East with a heart for working with Arab Muslims. Their desire is to see God ignite a movement of house churches as Arab Muslims come to know Christ. However, it comes with challenges as it is illegal for Muslims to choose the follow Jesus and there are many misconceptions of what a Christ-follower means in the Muslim world. All three of their daughters have been born in the Middle East. Please pray: *For their family to stay healthy and thriving in the Lord and together *For opportunities to share boldly about Jesus with those who are seeking in unstable times in our region *For grace for the few who have believed who deal with persecution from their families and community.
