Our Missionaries

John and Kay answered God’s call on their lives to move to Swaziland as full time missionaries in 2010, bringing with them only their youngest son, Jeremiah, and their two dogs, Barnabas and Boaz, plus the absolute essentials. They sold their home and most of their belongings, leaving behind their oldest son, Zachariah, elderly parents, and successful professional careers.

Prior to this incredible journey God had prepared for them, John and Kay lived in Phoenix, AZ with Zack (born in1988) and Jeremy (born in 1992), in the affluent suburb of Ahwatukee.

John has a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and had been employed as a Marketing Manager with Cox Communications for over 20 years. Kay has a Masters in Counseling degree as well as a background in instrumental music and had dual careers as a pastoral counselor and as a private music teacher. They were active in their local church and with several local ministries and organizations.

John and Kay know full well that they are not qualified for the work God has laid before them. But he said to [us],“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore [we] will boast all the more gladly about [our] weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on [us]. 2 Corinthians 12:9
