During this time, Chuck accepted the position as president of WIM and traveled extensively to visit and minister with WIM missionaries. Chuck and Mary Nell currently reside in New Braunfels, Texas, home of WIM headquarters. Chuck continues to provide leadership to WIM as Director of Missionary Development.

With World Indigenous Missions since 1990, Tony and Mary Ann Bianchi have served the Lord primarily in southeast Asia. They have been involved in ministering the gospel, training and mentoring young leaders, establishing a children’s home for at-risk girls, and providing pastoral care (Member Care) for missionaries.
The Bianchis currently direct the newly formed and developing Member Care department at WIM, providing pastoral care for WIM missionaries and others in need of emotional and spiritual healing and support, debriefing, coaching, and encouragement. They also minister in the areas of pre-marital counseling and marriage enrichment.
Tony and Mary Ann’s heart’s desire is for missionaries to be emotionally healthy and spiritually mature in order to glorify God through fulfilling and effective cross-cultural service.
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.
