Meet Our Missionaries
Karen is making disciples and church planting among unreached Palawano tribal people and Low Land Muslim peoples of Bataraza, Palawan. Because the people are still 99% illiterate the YWAM base offers educational, livelihood and healthcare programs. They are mobilizing the body of Christ in Palawan and the Philippines to also go to the unreached by going, sending and praying.
Amanda is a LifeMission Church sent missionary. She serves as a ``pengasuh`` or an ``adopter`` at the orphanage she and her Indonesian ministry partners founded in August 2018. She serves as full-time mother to their first child and will be so for the children the Lord brings to them in the future.
Arturo is a LifeMission Church sent missionary. He moved to Southeast Asia this year where he and his team are focused on setting up a training and sending location available to international students. He is leading their staff services in their ministry. He desires to partner and serve locals and local churches to help them establish unity that represents Jesus.
They train and mobilize existing churches in evangelism, praying for the sick, and leading Bible studies that can become churches. They encourage and equip these churches to work together to plant other churches in every community around them that does not yet have one

After completing her training in preparation to do mission work overseas, she moved to Southeast Asia for nearly 6 months before returning to the States due to Covid.
