2016-04-06 (26)Go Missions! – Peru

Nick and Shannon Kraft, along with their four children, are working as missionaries in Chiclayo, Peru through the organization they founded, Go Missions! International.  Shannon has a Lutheran background as a member of Oak Harbor Lutheran Church and a graduate of the Lutheran Bible Institute (now Trinity Lutheran College).  Her husband Nick has a background in the Assembly of God tradition.  Their “mixed marriage” has led to a wonderful partnership between two traditions here in Oak Harbor, as we at Oak Harbor Lutheran Church support them alongside Whidbey Grace Community Church.

Go Missions! is sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the people of Chiclayo as they build relationships, lead Bible studies, and minister to others in Jesus’ name.  They recently offered a six-week discipleship course called CORE, which included a number of students both local and international.  They have also held classes on Christian marriage, and held movie nights utilizing Spanish-dubbed versions of Christian films like “Courageous.”

We recently enjoyed a live video chat with the Kraft family in Peru.  We look forward to their newsletter and email updates, and especially their visits back home to Oak Harbor.
