The S Family

Organization: Not listed - sensitive information

J and A have been full time missionaries since they graduated from college. They both grew up in NY, only a couple hours away from each other, but didn’t become friends until God called them as singles to the field to reach college students for Christ. They were married in 2016 and are now blessed with three children.

When the pandemic arrived and the borders to Asia became closed, the Lord began to clarify their calling and next steps. He spoke that J and A are called to be a “light in dark places,” and as an expression of that in this season to go to Northern Africa seeking to ignite church planting movements. With dozens of unreached people groups, many of them being Frontier (less than 0.1% Christian and no sustained gospel movement), Northern Africa is ripe for harvest, but the laborers are few.

The vast majority of mission prayer, giving and laborers focus on strengthening Christians where Christians are already present. Only a tiny portion of mission prayer and resources go to Unreached People Groups (UPGs) at all, and only a tiny fraction of this goes to Frontier peoples. Very few mission agencies and churches send even 1% of their missionaries to Frontier Peoples. Their heart and vision is to see this changed and that those with no access to the Gospel would have a chance to hear it for the first time.

Setting up in urban centers where most of these UPGs congregate for employment, J and A are positioning themselves for maximum impact for Christ.

Please pray that God leads them to good soil people and persons of peace who are ready to follow God and lay down their lives for him!
