Missionaries

We exist to build up healthy Christians and churches.  We see this lived out practically in many ways, one of which is through supporting missionaries across the globe.  All of our missionaries have a  direct connection to Mid Valley and do a great job keeping us updated on how God is using them.  For the latest missionary updates, head over to our blog.

Matt and Chelsea Connor currently reside in Ambon, Indonesia with their four children: Indeah, Josiah, Dylan  and Ezra.  Matt partners with Wycliffe Bible Translators and is on the cutting edge of translating.  In his studies, he's come to realize the power of music as an oratory way to teach stories of the Bible.  Chelsea is sister to Pastor Jesse's wife, Emily.

Pastor Pedro Espinoza is pictured here with his wife Maria and children, Paola, Rachel, Laura and Pedro Jr.  Pastor Pedro was on staff at Mid Valley Community Church for 4 years when he returned to his home country of Leon, Nicaragua.  Since returning, Mid Valley has helped build a thriving church in Central America and has fully supported both Pedro and the Worship Pastor for Iglesia comunidad Cristiana de Nicaragua.  You can see more about the church by heading to their Facebook page.

Due to the political hostility towards Christianity in China we need to protect the identity of our missionary, "Mims" and we cannot give details as to the nature of the ministry.  Pray that the underground church in China continues to grow and that Mims is able to have a strong impact in the lives of those he/she works with.   

Shalom Graham-Ohlson is a "short term" missionary, serving with YWAM at Discipleship Training School (DTS).  She will be ministering in Ecuador for 2 months after she completes her DTS.  You can read her blog and how she is growing here.

Paul and Becky Geary have been in West Borneo, Indonesia, since 1998 working in partnership with the Indonesian Christian Bethesda Hospital Foundation.  The vision of Bethesda Hospital Foundation is to partner with believers from every tribal, cultural, educational and economic background to be an instrument for spreading the gospel of salvation in jesus Christ to as many people as can possibly be reached through the avenue of health care.  The hospital provides care that is competently and compassionately given, especially reaching out to those who are isolated and forgotten, poverty stricken and lacking in formal education.  You can read more about what the Geary's are up to and how you can pray for them by going here
