We (Elna and Ryan) met at Grace Fellowship Pretoria as university students and were married in 2007. God has blessed us with two children.
Before leaving for the missions field Elna served in our church’s young ladies’ Bible Study and Ryan served as an associate pastor.
In the book of Acts Luke records for us that Paul and Barnabas did not undertake their mission to the Gentiles on their own. They were sent out by their home church—the church of Antioch (Acts 13:1-3)—to which they often returned (Acts 14:26-28; 18:22-23).
Grace Fellowship Pretoria is our sending church. They are “holding the rope” while we are on the mission field. We love our church. And they love us and the people of Papua New Guinea.
We highly recommend the following sermon on missions by our pastor Joel James: Keep Your Eyes on the Map (Matt 28:19).
