Never in a million years would we have asked for this kind of opportunity. So how did this happen? Bill Welsh is the pastor of Refuge Calvary Chapel in Huntington Beach California. Pastor Bill has a radio ministry where he teaches every afternoon at 4:30 and he’s decided to spotlight a missionary the last Friday of every month.
I (Jeff) was a member of this church and its youth group from my freshmen year in high school up until I left for Calvary Chapel Bible College. While I was in this youth group, being discipled by Pastor Dan Berg, God called me to missions in Europe. Now, two of my peers from that youth group, Erick and Peyton, are pastors at this church and they were instrumental in introducing me to Kris during our trip to Southern California this past summer (2012).
At the time, Kris and I had a common interest in creating apps for ministry. He’s involved in creating an app called Thru the Word that encourages users to daily journal their way through the Bible. A few months later, when we knew we were visiting Southern California in December, I asked if he would like to get together for lunch so we could talk about our calling to Germany. That’s when he agreed to lunch and invited us to do this interview.
We are praising God for such an unbelievable opportunity! And we are praying that many will hear and be called to be our financial armor bearers!
