The Pano People began asking for missionaries in the 1980’s. We sent a team to serve this people group in 2020. Over the next ten years, our goal is to equip them and leave the work in their hands. As the Gospel takes root in their hearts, some will emerge as leaders in establishing and expanding the reach of the Gospel.

When Craig was 14 years old he committed to God that,“I would do anything God asked me to do.” Throughout high school God put that commitment to the test. One of the biggest ways he did that was by placing the burden for missions on Craig’s heart. Towards the end of high school, after years of thinking, praying and talking to others he committed to follow God to the mission field. Over the years God has continued to refine Craig’s understanding of just what He wants him to do.
