Hunter, Jonathan & Sophi

missionary

Bio:

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.
