As we prepare to celebrate 20 years as an organization on May 3, we asked our staff, associates and board to share how being a part of the GPPD team has impacted their lives and hearts.

We are very grateful that our Lord raised up the ministry of Global Partners in Peace and Development. We have been with GPPD since the beginning, and they have enabled us to minister as God has been directing us. They have given us the freedom to live by faith and God has provided amazingly for the needs of our family and ministry. In this way, GPPD has helped us to build God’s Kingdom in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Many people only think of missions to third world countries, but thankfully GPPD recognizes the importance of missions in Europe too. Because of the incredible support, encouragement, and prayers from the GPPD staff, we have never felt alone. It continues to be a pleasure and privilege to work with the GPPD family. We are so thankful to our God for all of you.

In January, 2017 I went with Matt and a group to South Asia. It was non-stop ministry activity. Every day was filled with visits to children's homes, village meetings, well dedications and ministry to widows. It was a very impactful experience, and the people captured my heart. Perhaps the most significant moment of the trip was our last day of ministry. Matt, the pastors and I travelled to a small village to do a well dedication. We met a beautiful older couple there who had been praying for years for a church to be established in their village. The well that we dedicated that day was the tool God used to answer their prayers. I came home with a burdened heart for these folks we met.
