International workers, Marty and Gloria Banzhaf, are a Peruvian-American couple that have served the Lord faithfully for many years. With rich experience in cross-cultural ministry, they answered the call to step in and lead the church in Rome and minister to a large refugee population.
Are we there yet?
No, we are still in Paraguay, but, God has us here for a purpose. We want to share with you some ways He is using us as we wait on his timing to enter Uruguay!
Although this Divine Detour is taking longer than expected, we are grateful to be available here to do whatever God asks of us. May you be encouraged by these photos, and know we love you and bless you for your prayers and support! Please continue to pray with us for God's perfect timing to complete this detour and send us on the next leg of our journey.
Thank you for sending, praying, and giving! Please let us know how we can pray for you.
With our Love and Thanks, Randy & Alicia
Matt and Teri were born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and chose to raise their family and build their lives there, until God prompted them to make a change.
They both were involved with missions in college and for a short time after. Once they were married and had children, it was something they put on hold until joining Christ Community Church (CCC) in Omaha in 2010. While attending CCC Matt and Teri became involved with youth ministry and the family enjoyed helping with community outreach.
In 2012 they both started sensing the call to missions from God, and two years later, they left everything and moved to the Dominican Republic for 2-years with Envision. While in the DR, the entire family participated in the many different ministries, which led them to the opportunity to open a new Envision Site in Miami in 2016 where they are currently Site Coordinators.
Invloved with Leadership Development.
They are helping build God's church worldwide
