Asaph & Lynn

Asaph & Lynn
Asaph, son of a Presbyterian Pastor and grandson of a traveling evangelist in rural Central Asia, was born and raised in Central Asia.  He comes from a family that accepted Christianity (from Sikhism) four generations ago.  His mother worked as a Bible teacher in a Christian hospital, where she shared the gospel to both Muslim and Christian patients.  Asaph came to the US in 2001 and he is now a dual citizen.   Asaph holds a Masters of Divinity degree from Erskine Theological Seminary.  He became aware of God’s work in his life at an early age.  As a teenager, God used his love for sports to reach his peers in his hometown in Central Asia.  Asaph wants to continue this ministry to Muslim/Christian youth as well as work towards planting a church and theological training for local leaders.  His prayer is for a strong indigenous church that will be a light in a dark place.

Listening to Lynn’s voice, you will hear that she was born and raised in South Carolina.  Lynn grew up in a Christian home. She knew that she was a child of God when she was very young, although she didn’t have that “a-ha” moment in her faith until she was in college.  Lynn graduated from Appalachian State University in 1995 with a degree in Health Promotion.  Shortly after graduation, she moved to Central Asia to teach Public Health in a Christian hospital.  Lynn returned to school and is now a registered nurse.  She intends to divide her time between homeschooling and establishing a medical clinic as with a Public Health outreach program. 
Asaph and Lynn met while she was serving as a single missionary in Central Asia.  They have two daughters, Leah  and Emma.

As they look to go back to Eastern Asia, they ask for your prayers.  Eastern Asia is a volatile place and with all its uncertainties, it is a place where the opportunity for the Gospel is unrivaled.    The heart of Islam is beating in Eastern Asia and God is at work.  Join hands with them as they seek to be obedient to God’s call to be a light in a dark place.  We will not post specific updates here, but pray for their safety, for God's protection of their marriage and family, and that they would get much needed rest as they spend time back home in the states summer 2016..
