Josh & Heather Erickson

Senegal

We are the Erickson Family serving with the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Senegal, West Africa. We spent our first term learning French and Wolof as well as opening a boys vocational school with a focus on teaching the Bible and Automotive Mechanics. We are pleased to announce that the boys school has continued during our absence on home assignment. Our family has a heart for discipleship, evangelism, and hospitality. Jesus is on the move in Senegal! 

We head back to Senegal for a second term on July 1st, 2024. Please pray for our family as we transition back and don't hesitate to reach out and connect with us! 
 

Josh, Heather, Tristan (17), Treven (13), Lincoln (12), Eliana (11), and Jackson (7).

Don & Rachel Schaeffer

Japan

Don and Rachel have served in Japan with the C&MA since 2019. Don was born and grew up in Japan and Rachel is a Maryland girl. Don and Rachel both accepted the call into overseas ministry at a young age and studied at Toccoa Falls College, an Alliance school in Georgia. They have three young boys: Donald, Elliot and Samuel. Don and Rachel served at Plymouth Alliance Church in Plymouth, Wisconsin for 4.5 years before going to Japan, so they enjoy good WI cheese and Packer's Parties. In their first four years in Japan, they were involved in language learning, neighborhood evangelism through English teaching and hospitality, serving in church ministries such as preaching and worship leading, and assisted in beginning a Japan Alliance Youth leadership team. They are preparing for a church plant in 2024 in the city of Fujimi, located in Saitama, Japan.

Michael & Lia Strand

Bosnia-Herzegovina

Michael and Lia Strand, who have five adult children, serve in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Hercegovina (BiH); currently they are on Home Assignment here in Wisconsin.  While in BiH, they taught English; presented courses on cognitive development (Lia) and business (Michael); and various other activities. They had a "salt and light" meaningful presence in various community organizations. Finally, and significantly, they worked to develop mature disciples: individual believers, small groups, and alongside local churches.  Currently they are pursuing their next steps for returning to BiH.

Rob & Heidi Scott

Kosovo

We are Rob and Heidi Scott, serving in Prishtina, Kosovo in Southeastern Europe. We both grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin and were called to mission in our 40’s. We have two daughters, Eliana and Malia and have served with the CMA since 2021. Our first two years were dedicated to learning the Albanian language, culture and history. God opened the door to ministry opportunities at a community center, where we have been teaching English, Leadership classes, and helping with outreach events. In June, 2023, we both stepped into leadership roles at the center and are praying for God’s wisdom in developing young leaders and more connection points in the community. The center is a bridge between our non-believing neighbors and the local church through a comfortable gathering/coffee space, education and programs.
