About Ben

My relationship with Jesus Christ began when I was young. I knew that I was a sinner, those sins earned me death, but I didn’t have to die if I accepted Jesus’ free gift.
Growing up I loved going to church and learning about God and the Bible. I considered myself extremely privileged in my upbringing and heritage. In 2011 when I when to the Word of Life Bible Institute. I was pushed outside my comfort zone and challenged with the reality of the Gospel in such a way that I realized that I needed to surrender control of my life to God. Jesus needed to be not just a savior, but also Lord. I was already justified and saved by the blood of Christ, but this was a necessary step in me fully maturing and walking in obedience. I met my wonderful wife during our first year at WOL, and we maintained a long distance relationship over the next year as I traveled with the WOL Impact Team, and she studied to be an Advanced EMT. After, we were married and God provided a job and a wonderful place to live. While we were traveling to a WOL Missions Conference in January 2016, we heard that the ministries in Europe were turning away people because they didn't have enough people to send. Megan and I sought to find out if God would have us meet this need for more workers. What seemed at first to be a daunting and almost impossible idea financially for us, turned into a wide open door as God made it possible go back to the Bible Institute for more training. For two years we served with WOL Poland with the Cross cultural internship and now we are joining the team in Owen Sound, Ontario with Launch.


About Megan

I grew up in the state of Maine into a catholic home, I was always searching for God but was never able to find Him. In the sixth grade I was invited to go to a summer camp called Living Waters Bible Camp. That is where I learned of this great God who I had been searching and longing for. I learned that He loves me and sent His only Son to die for me and three days later rose from the dead to set me free from my sin! Then I made the most important decision I will ever make, that is to trust Christ as my Lord and Savior. I surrendered my life to Him that day and was changed. From there I always wanted to be a missionary and went on a few trips. In 2011 I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute in NY where I met my husband.

We are blessed with four children:
Adelie - 5 years old
Gracie (Anabel) - 4 years old
Hudson - 2 years old
Sawyer - 8 months old


Psalm 22:27 - "All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee."
