THE REED'S

Who We Are

Life is opening our hearts to God's word and following his call.

 

That is where the story of Patrick and Michele begins.

Michele received Christ at the age of twelve when she attended a youth group night. At the age of nineteen, Patrick and Michele began a courtship even though Patrick did not believe in God. A year later, God prevailed and Patrick received Christ into his life. They have been happily married since 2002 and have three wonderful children.

 

In February 2017, after working in the business sector for twenty years, Patrick heard the Lord's call to serve in foreign missions. In March, God opened Patrick and Michele's hearts to start a ministry of church planting in The Gambia.  Their burden is to share the message of salvation with the Gambian people through business and education. They are currently raising support for their ministry.  The Gambia is over ninety five percent Muslim and has less than one percent evangelical Christians.

 

ABWE (Association of Baptists for World Evangelism), as a mission board, is giving them the training and guidance they need to minister to the people God has called them to reach.

 

They are currently serving Christ at Grace Baptist Church in Hurlock, Maryland.
