Hey we're the Risinger Family!
Lindsey and I both grew up in Northern Indiana and spent many of those years attending the same church. In 2009, my father took the pastorate at Lighthouse Baptist Church in South Bend. It was a great opportunity for me to learn and gain hands-on church planting experience.
In 2014, before we were married, my wife and I had the opportunity to be on the same missions team to Johannesburg, South Africa for a two month block of time. Shortly after we retuned from this trip, He made it clear that His will was for us to be married. We were engaged in December of 2014 and married in May of 2015. We had a mutual burden for the continent of Africa and were seeking God as to how He would direct our lives and ministry for His glory.
It is with great joy that we anticipate the work God is calling us to in the West Nile Region. In January of 2017 we were able to take a short trip there for the second time. It was then that, in answer to specific prayer, God deeply impressed us with His burden for the people there.
We are humbled that God has chosen us to serve Him on a foreign field and that He has entrusted us with the Good News of the Gospel for the unreached. By His divine grace, we are embarking on this journey and are thankful that He has chosen the weak things of the world and promised to do through us what we cannot possibly do on our own.
