Giving goes a long way...
This is Brent and Michelle Ellingson. In February of 2016, Brent and Michelle were sent by NorthRidge to Nicaragua to live and to serve. There's a lot more to their story, (click the link to hear their story,) but the heart of the matter is that they've responded to God's call on their lives to sell everything and live as missionaries in Nicaragua.
Brent will be using his giftings as a builder and project manager (along with many other giftings) to serve under the banner of eMi (Engineering Ministries International.) The link will tell you about what they'll be doing with eMi, but if you know Brent and Michelle, you'll know that their "role" isn't limited to a ministry-description. As a couple, they've already served on numerous short-term missions trips. They are going to be in Nicaragua to see people's lives changed because of the transformational power of the gospel.
If you'd like to follow along in their adventures, keep in touch by following their blog. Brent and Michelle are committed to doing their part to stay connected to our church family here in Canada and we're committed to doing the same! So, if you'd like to reach out and connect with the Ellingsons, we'd really encourage you to do so! You can simply visit the Contact Us page from their website and send a message from Canada directly to our missionaries in Nicaragua!
Finally, if you want to help be a "witness... to the ends of the earth", you can pray and give. This is a fantastic opportunity in that you'll see every penny of your gifts go directly to the ones you're giving to.
The Ellingsons are on a mission to see lives changed for eternity and we are invited to join in for the ride!
