We are pleased and blessed to participate in the ministries of several
shaliachim (emissaries, or 'sent ones), as they serve the Holy One in foreign
and domestic fields. We encourage you to join us in supporting them with your
prayer and finances.
John & Cathy OBrien
A personal friend of our Rabbi, John OBrien gave his life to the Holy One, by
faith in Messiah Y'Shua in 1986. In 1995, after several years of faithful
preparation, He and his wife Cathy left their life of comfort in Marana Arizona,
to begin their training at New Tribes Bible School, in Waukeshaw, Wisconsin.
John, his wife Cathy, and his four children, Brittaini, Noel, John Steven, and
Kendon, have been serving the Holy One, as congregation planters in Kharkov,
Ukraine, since the latter part of 1997. Due to the limited quality of available
health care, extremes of Ukrainian weather, and resistance from cults and
established Orthodox leaders, the OBrien family has had quite an uphill
struggle since they arrived in Kharkov. We are happy to report that after many
years of investment, a time of great harvest has come, and many have given their
lives to the Holy One and are working alongside the OBriens.

Kirk & Regina Walker
Kirk Walker was well on his way to a lucrative career as a lawyer when He
encountered a young man with a message on campus. This young man told Kirk about
a life of peace with G-d and forgiveness for sin, by faith in
Messiah Y'Shua. Kirk later gave his life to the Holy One, and received his call
to yield his own plans to be a lawyer and to serve G-d in the same
way as the young man who first began to share the Good News with him. Kirk is
now serving G-d as one of His representatives, in Campus
Ministries, on the University of Arizona, in Tucson.
We are happy to announce that Kirk has been strengthened in his ministry, by
marriage to his beautiful bride, Regina, in December of 2000. Together, they are
influencing the lives of many young people for the Holy one, on the UofA campus
and other college campuses in the US and various foreign countries.

Jason & Shelly Estelle
Jason was born in Bogota, Colombia, South America. His parents were missionaries
to Colombia with New Tribes Mission. Jason thanks the L-rd for
growing up in a good 'believing' home. He lived in Colombia until he was 17
years old, when he had to leave or be drafted into the Colombian army. Jason
felt it was a tremendous privilege to grow up as a missionary kid, and he
wouldn't trade it for anything.
Shelly was born in Iowa in 1974. Her parents went to the field of Indonesia in
1975. She lived in Indonesia until she graduated from high school in 1993. She
and Jason were married on July 29, 1995. They have two boys, Shawn and Drew.
Growing up in a 'believing' home, Jason realized his hopelessness and personal
need for G-d at a very early age. He realized that he needed to put
his trust in Messiah's finished work on the cross as sufficient to completely
atone for his sin. He thanks the L-rd for parents who were faithful
in teaching and leading him according to Biblical standards.
Shelly received eternal life in Y'Shua when she was six. Growing up in a
'believing' home, she had known all along what Messiah has done for her, but it
wasn't until she was six that she realized her own need for Him in her life.
Jason graduated from high school in Maitland, Florida. He then attended Pima
College in Arizona and became a certified EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).
He completed his education at Waukesha Bible School in Wisconsin in the fall of
1994 and at the New Tribes Language Institute in 1996. Shelly also graduated
from New Tribes Bible School in 1995 and from the New Tribes Language Institute
Currently Jason and Shelly are serving among the unreached people in Peru,
working with the Pioneers. The have recently, after over five years of work,
begun to make contact with the tribal peoples in the jungles of Peru.
