This is our story. It really is simple. We felt a nudge from God, stepped into that nudge and it has continued to unfold from there. God slowly opened up our hearts to jump in feet first and be part of starting a multicultural church in London, England. Maybe it would have made more sense as a young couple but instead we’re taking three kids along on the journey, because when God calls you to do something, it means your family too.
Patrick is an illustrator/designer who uses his medium to share God’s love through art shows, social media and interactions with clients. Patrick is passionate about people understanding their importance to God and that they are loved beyond anything they can imagine. He is working for St. Luke’s as the Community Arts Missionary and helps welcome people to the church and helps guide the creative elements of the church. Check out his artwork on Etsy.
Maya uses her business, Be Wildly Beautiful, to reach out to the women in London and help other women build a business online. She also manages selling Patrick’s artwork on Etsy and through other avenues. She’s passionate about empowering women of all ages to see their beauty wildly and know they’re a masterpiece God created. She helps out at St. Luke’s with mentoring and discipling younger women of the church.
Our family loves exploring together with simple walks in the woods to checking out a new city. Reading and art are a huge part of our everyday family activities and it’s pretty common to see one of our kids with marker stains on their hands (or on their faces). Our three kids Zane, Jude and Veda couldn’t be any more different from one another and we love their uniqueness.
