Hi, I’m Stefanie,

I‘m married to a fantastic guy and mama to 4 little girls (8, 5, and 4-year-old twins).  We live in a large city in Northern India, working with women and their families who are living in extreme poverty.  I’m a nurse by profession, and I’m able to use my medical background often as a practical way to meet the needs of our friends here and also as a tool for ministry.  My main job in this season of life is homeschooling our girls, which is a role I really love.  We are prayerfully using micro-businesses to engage our target people group (the 20 million Muslims in our province) with the deep desire to see many come to know Jesus and a church-planting movement begin.  Its a pioneering work, with very few other expats in our area, but we have fallen in love with our Muslim friends and neighbors.

We would love prayer for the Lord to give us lots of wisdom as we seek out relationships and opportunities to start micro-businesses in our target communities, for our family to be able to begin to feel like India is our home after going through a very difficult, stressful first year, and for spiritual protection over our family as we live and work in a very dark place.  Please pray that we would seek the Lord above all else, and that we would be His light shining here in our city.
