I am pleased to announce that Jon & Marissa and their children Owen & Parker will be joining the team of missionaries in Burundi, East Africa. Their assignment will be to assist the national church in developing and implementing a national children’s ministry. 45% of Burundi’s population are children under the age of 14.
The Paulsens have extensive ministry experience, having worked in Children’s ministries for most of their pastoral duties. Most recently they served as Children’s pastors at Racine Assembly of God under Pastor Ed Walker.
The country of Burundi is wedged between Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Rwanda. It occupies a high plateau and is divided by several deep valleys. It is about the size of the state of Maryland.
Please pray for the Paulsens as they begin their itineration to raise the necessary funds to begin their assignment. This is a daunting task for every new missionary. If you are unable to support the Paulsens at this time, please pray with them when you receive their call.
They come to you highly endorsed by the Network’s Foreign Missions Operating Board.
