     "Our resolve is always to spread the full gospel of salvation in the provision and hope we possess in our resurrected Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ," Collin said in an email. "We will serve in a region other than our own with diverse cultures, customs, languages and people groups, but it has dawned upon us that our responsibility is to 'make Christ-like disciples in the nations,' not by being alike but being in love. ... We covet your prayers. Africa is our home!"

Their responsibilities are vision casting, spiritual strategy and skills formation, administration, missionary care, volunteer missionary service, overseeing all institutions on the field and compassionate ministry.
