They served as missionaries in Bolivia (working there since 2011, he was commended in 2013, they received their joint commendation in 2019) until 2019 and are now in the United States, continuing their ministry as cross-cultural missionaries based out of North Augusta, SC.

In the past he has been invited to speak all over the US and Bolivia, as well as Canada, Mexico, Spain, and most of Latin America.
Their ministry involves: expository preaching, speaker at camps and conferences, radio and television broadcasting, and authoring books in Spanish and English. Christopher has also taught at college levels on multiple topics including Christian Philosophy/Apologetics, Church History, Homiletics, Doctrine, Eschatology, Missions, Sects, and Bible Exposition. Genesis' ministry has been growing as well, including speaking to women, functioning as the manager for her husband's books, and using her administrative skills in a variety of ways. God is very good, and they have truly been blessed by all the incredible opportunities & open doors.
Their heart's desire, Lord willing, is to be serve the Lord fully until their last breath, wherever He sends them. "Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me" (Col 1:28-29, ESV).
