We also met the Reyes family in Okinawa, Japan. We all grew together at Maranatha Baptist Church and still enjoy “family reunions” with them whenever we visit Lancaster, California. The Reyeses love serving the Lord. In Okinawa, Sydney often worked nights and spent his days helping wherever he could at the church and academy. I often wondered when he slept! Vicki taught at Maranatha Baptist Academy, and Janis and Ajana helped her and the other teachers as soon as classes ended each day. We praise the Lord for bringing this wonderful family into our lives, and families like this one make serving in military missions extra special. Thank you, Sydney for your testimony and kind words!


Military families move a lot. It helps when they move to a foreign land and be able to go to a church to worship, fellowship, and make lasting friends. We thank God for military missionaries who God called to foreign lands to minister, be a blessing, encourage saved military families to grow in their relationship with God, and share the Gospel to those who are not saved, military or not.

Military missions mean a lot to our family. Personally, military missions hold a special place in my heart for it was in a military missions church (Maranatha Baptist Church, Okinawa) that God saved me from my sins.
It means a lot for my family for it is in one that we made friends who over the years have become family. But more importantly, it was there that God gave us the awesome privilege to grow closer to Him and know Him more personally.

Jesse and Lynne has been a blessing and to us, especially to our daughters. We always look forward to them visiting us and yet, we are more excited to see them go into the field and be used of God for the harvest. We will miss them as they go to where God has called them. We thank and praise God for them.
