Since 2011 Paul and Esther’s family have been seeking to reach Buddhists in the foothills of the Himalayas. Paul was clearly called by the Lord to this largely unreached people group when he was just 14 years old.
This calling led him to pursue and complete degrees in TESOL from Hobe Sound Bible College and Cornerstone University (Grand Rapids, MI), and to court and marry Esther r, a dedicated young lady whom God was also calling into cross-cultural ministry.
Paul and Esther spent their first two years of married life as missionaries to Japan before God at last opened a door for them in the country where they now live, study, teach and work. They have been blessed with three beautiful children, Menita, Isaiah, and Yashua.
Paul and Esther are examples to us of quiet strength, humility and complete commitment to the will of God. They have a love for exploration, adventure and mountain climbing, and their children are following in their footsteps!
