The Ministry Team
Just hearing the term ‘mission trip’ makes my heart pitter patter. I fell in love with serving abroad after my first mission trip to Panama when I was in High School. Since then I’ve been able to go on a few more and each one only heightened my enthusiasm and desire to go back, hopefully one day, long-term! Another God-given love in my life is serving older adults. My education and professional background is working with the elderly population in the healthcare industry. When Mugabi Ministries was forming I was beyond thrilled to see two of my greatest passions marrying into one fantastic ministry. What an absolute joy to be a part of this ministry and work alongside Joel, who is truly showing the older adults in his community the love and character of Jesus. My prayer for Mugabi Ministries is to see an elderly community come together in Jesus’ name, while helping to provide for them physically, emotionally, and spiritually; that God would allow us the privilege of displaying the glory of the Gospel and seeing the Kingdom come in their lives.

"I came to Christ at the age of 16. I attended youth group regularly on Wednesdays and church on Sundays. Through church and my friends, missions have always been on my heart to serve in my community and overseas. I met my wife, Molly, shortly after high school and got married a year later. We have six children, four girls and two boys. We home-school, love the Lord, each other, our kids and would not change our lives for anything. For the past several years we have sat dormant, spending time in the Word, building our marriage relationship and raising our children, all the while waiting for God's call as we have both felt His plans for us were in the making. God recently used "the great commission" found in the New Testament, to tell us now was the time to 'go'. We are only just beginning to fully realize what Jesus meant when He said "Follow Me".
