The M family lives in North Africa, working among Muslim Arabs and Berbers in transformational development and discipleship. Leadership development engagements recently have opened up influence in both French-speaking and English-speaking communities: from teaching leadership material to Antioch leaders, to participating in small group growth for Frontiers leaders, to speaking of the joy of a life on mission at our local church.

Rich and JoAnn Davis
Rich and JoAnn Davis are currently here in the U.S., but they have still been able to continue ministry in Moldova and have also had some new opportunities arise. Rich has a discipleship ministry with remarkable young leaders. Joann has been able to meet online weekly with some women from Peru for a bible study. They have both been able to take some courses online that will help them further their ministry.
K & B
K & B are with the Navigators. They serve, lead and shepherd the ministry of The Navigators in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region. K is the MENA Regional Director. Their calling is to advance the Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into the nations of the MENA region through spiritual generations of laborers and leaders living and discipling among the lost.
E & B
Since the beginning of the COVID lockdowns, E and B made the decision to fly back to the U.S. They continue to help the church in Kiev with church planting. This has challenged them to ask the following questions...What does church planting look like when people are afraid to come out of their dwelling and what happens to church planter training when certain means of transport are shut down and groups aren’t allowed to gather?
JeanJean & Kristie Mompremiere
United Christians International began in February 2005 with JeanJean and Kristie Mompremier's God-given desire to share JeanJean’s seminary training with the lay pastors of the area near Caiman (JeanJean’s home town). What began as a 3 month stay in the fall of 2005, has now grown into a nutrition center, health clinic, elementary school, university, seminary, and training center for medical and agricultural students.
John & Hortense Bullock
John and Hortense Bullock served as missionary doctors at the Memorial Christian Hospital in Bangladesh for over 18 years. They now work from their home in Oregon and train students remotely through Skype in Orthopedic Technician training. Since their training is online, COVID has not affected their training.
Trinity supports two families and two national missionaries serving the Hmong people in Southeast Asia. Our longest supported family provides on-the-ground leadership and training for nationals. The other family also provides leadership roles over activities in the region. The two nationals have taken responsibility for reaching their own people through visiting villages and translating parts of the bible in their native language.
Cathie has been in Oklahoma for the last few months. In February she will go back to Mexico to continue to do some
of the work she had been doing previously. While in Mexico, Cathie was teaching the English language to two women. The first was a local dentist who has a passion to use her dentistry skills to help those in need. Cathie’s hope is that this will turn into a discipleship relationship. The second was with a person who has a passion to disciple girls who come from abusive backgrounds.
San Jose/ Nepal
At the end of last year, Kevin was going to travel with a team for 1 year throughout the United States to mobilize students to go to the 10/40 window and then go to Nepal as a full time missionary. When he arrived in Colorado to meet with his team, he was told that the program had been put on hold. Through much prayer and counsel, he made the decision to go to Nepal and then COVID happened. All borders were closed and they will continue to be closed to the end of this year.
Miriam was trained by her sister Nancy Navarro and leads the discipleship making movement from her home leading family and neighbors to Christ. Unfortunately, Miriam and her family contracted COVID and had to pause the training while they healed. Trinity Church and the Global Impact Team has been sending support so they can have a food pantry out of their home. They do not have the resources that we have here in the United States so Nancy has been leading this from Sunnyvale.
