Jonathan and Sophi met for the first time while Jonathan was on a short-term missions trip to Honduras. After getting to know each other better through internet messaging and several subsequent personal trips back to Honduras, Jonathan and Sophi were married in February 2015 and have lived in Honduras since. During this time they felt God developing in them a strong desire to serve Him while traveling to other parts of the world. After prayerfully seeking God for His will and direction, they felt God calling them to go and serve other missionaries by providing assistance with specific projects or just offering support and encouragement for a time in an effort to refresh and renew those who have made God’s call their focus in life.
David and Sue recently joined World Indigenous Missions. They served on the mission field in Jerusalem, Israel from 1982 to 1984. After returning to the USA, they co-pastored and successfully planted a church in Suisun City in Northern California. They then moved to Southern California in 1991 and taught and preached in a local church in Long Beach, California, to help mother other churches. Both David and Sue have been ministering in the Middle East since 2008. In 2009 they successfully started a ministry to help other Christian leaders and ministries in the Middle East. They currently reside in Canyon Lake, Texas, and they love their supporting church – Genesis Fellowship.
Cody and Anna work with the youth at their church, helping with Sunday night youth group, summer camps and events. They co-lead an outreach Game Night. This started as part of a Bible small group, but has become a way to connect Christians with friends and coworkers in a fun, non-confrontational way. Anna volunteers at World Impact Now (WIN) Ministries, working with video editing, resource design and filming. Their long-term goal is to go back to Japan as a full-time missionaries. They believe the best way to prepare for that is to be involved in the ministry of the local church.
Though they have been part of World Indigenous Missions since 1987, Maurice and Glenda Morris do not do evangelism, church planting or other work typical of missionaries. Their field is the ministry of helps. Maurice’s mechanical ability keeps him constantly in demand, while Glenda’s forte is keeping the WIM office running and ministering to the missionaries’ needs.
