“We are called to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations with the Holy Spirit as our guide for the Glory of God the Father.”
Maverick and Amy are full-time commissioned missionaries with Globe International mission agency based out of Pensacola, FL.
Amy, a North Carolina native, took a mission's trip when she was a teenager to the (Challenge Farm) in Africa where she saw the needs and poverty that so many Americans have never experienced, yet she also witnessed the joy the kids had because of Jesus! She was so moved that that she laid down a desired future in fashion design to pursue missions work, got a degree in Biblical studies from Liberty Bible college, and soon began working stateside for missionary Cheri Thompson. (Founding Director of Challenge Farm)
Maverick, a Florida native, was called to be a missionary at a summer missions camp when he was a young teenager. He eventually went on to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the University of West Florida knowing graphic work could be something he could do around the world especially in the growing technological age. The Lord led him to work at Globe International Missions agency in Pensacola, FL combining a love for art and the call to missions. At one of Globe International’s annual mission conferences, through divine intervention, Maverick and Amy met, and fell in love! They are married with three beautiful children, Jonah, Hudson, and Ava.
After being married for one year, they served for one year in Asia as interns, and are now working with Challenge Farm Children's Home and Academy located in Kitale Kenya. Their prayer is to inspire a deep love for all nations and peoples in the heart of anyone that God leads them to disciple.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him." John3:16-17
Serving in Kenya
For the Glory of God
Challenge Farm is a full-time Children's home and Academy to orphaned, abandoned, or abused street children rescued off the streets. Currently there are over 100 children being discipled and rehabilitated and being shown practically and taught spiritually the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The school on property is highly esteemed as one of the best schools in the area and also welcomes many kids from the community in addition to the Challenge Farm kids.
There is sustainable agriculture, a bee apiary, a posho-mill, and a Kenyan staff of around 70 people. It is certainly a "Village."
We are so excited to be a part of what God is doing in Kenya, and how he is using these children and staff to reach their communities, the surrounding Kitale areas, and the world!
