Philip and Lori have a daughter, Claire.
Salvation Testimony of Philip & Lori:
Philip: Though I was raised in a Christian home, it wasn’t until I went to a youth camp at age 15 that I understood my sin, realized my need of a Savior and put my faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
Lori: I was raised in a Christian home and was saved when I was 4 years old. I understood the Gospel for the first time when my mom shared the Bible with me and I trusted the Lord as my Savior. The Lord worked in my heart and when I was 15 at a youth camp and I surrendered my life to His will more fully.
Philip: I graduated from Pensacola Christian College with a degree in Biblical studies but still felt unprepared for cross-cultural ministry on the mission field. So, I went to Peru for 6 months for some practical/specific training there.
Lori: I didn’t have specific plans to become a missionary or missionary’s wife, but I did want to be involved in ministry, so I studied graphic design. I graduated in 2008 and it wasn’t long after that that I met Philip!
Ministry Before the Mission Field:
After the 6 months in Peru, we helped start and worked on staff at our sending church in Georgia for 5 years before starting deputation to Thailand.
Current Ministry in Thailand:
We are church-planting missionaries in the country of Thailand.
Sending Church/Mission Board:
We are sent out of Vision Baptist Church and Vision Baptist Missions. Our mission board is connected to our home church. This is the church that I helped start and worked at for 5 years.
