Chiang Mai, Thailand!
Our initial commitment was to serve from January through April 2021. After a sequence of unexpected, God-led events…Chiang Mai is our home now! We will continue serving until God leads otherwise!
Eirenee’ paved the way for us after serving as a missionary in Chiang Mai in 2019. She was a homeschool teacher and attended Chiang Mai Christian Fellowship Church (CCF). The relationships she built were instrumental to our family returning together to Chiang Mai in Jan 2021. Over the past two years we have been so blessed to serve in several different capacities highlighted below.
- Intern, CCF (Jan – Jun 2021)
- Intern, FCF (Jan – Mar 2021)
- Volunteer Consultant, Lift International (Mar – Jun 2021)
- CCF Executive Pastor (Jun 2021 – Dec 2022)
- Social Media and Communications Coordinator, FCF (Jan – Jun 2021)
- Youth Ministry Director, CCF (Jul 2021 – Jun 2022)
We began serving as part-time volunteers with the Free Burma Rangers (FBR) in July 2021. FBR is a very unique organization that has been powerfully working to free the oppressed within Burma for the last 25 years. Our team at FBR is an amazing group of people with hearts for Jesus and a passion for freedom.
Ross has served as the medical supply coordinator since we began. Eirenee’ has served to develop children’s curriculum for several ethnic camps and villages along with developing and teaching English as a Second Language (ESL).
We began volunteering full time with FBR in October 2022. We continue in our similar capacties yet they are expanded with some additional duties.
Ross is also now a chaplain and leading the Chaplain Department – a newly formed department at FBR. His focus is on building up volunteers and rangers in Jesus name and partnering with the other departments to integrate the gospel in everything FBR does. Eirenee’ is also working to coordinate education and supplies specifically for the Jungle School of Medicine students.
We are so thankful for the church family God has given us in CCF. Though we are no longer on staff we believe strongly in the priority and value of the local church. We will continue to serve as God leads. We are also thankful for how God has prepared us along the way to serve full-time with FBR! God has brought us to a place in life where we are filled with great purpose, peace, and passion. To God be all the glory for this answered prayer!
