"I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it out in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light."
Andrew and Amberlynne became missionaries in 2008. They both have a bachelors in Intercultural Studies and Biblical Studies.
From 2009 through 2011, they lived in Java, Indonesia to study Indonesian, orientate new missionary families to the field, do bookkeeping for their organization, and run a guesthouse.
In 2012, Andrew and Amberlynne moved to Papua, Indonesia. After surveying 9 language groups, they decided to move into the village of Danokit.
Currently, they are working with two national families teaching through the Bible for the first time ever in the Komyandare's native tongue. Their goal is to have a body of believers who believe in God and are living their lives to glorify Him!
