As missionaries in Ivory Coast, West Africa, James and LaNelle George have started churches, trained national pastors, launched an evangelistic outreach program to remote villages called “Jungle Riders”, and opened an orphanage that currently houses 36 children! As Founders of GAP Missions, this couple has helped other missionary families respond to God’s call to foreign missions through training, planning and support.
We were so excited to finally see the Republic of Ireland firsthand when we took our survey trip at the beginning of March 2014. It is such an incredible country, full of beautiful views and ancient castles. While we enjoyed seeing some of the sights, our goal was to get an idea of the culture and spend more time learning. Things have moved quickly since that first trip! We have raised the necessary funds and are now living in this beautiful country full-time. Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support for our ministry!
Reaching the Republic of Ireland, John, Emily, Abigail, and Josiah Slater.

In 2020, Stefan and Jenny met through a ministry they were both helping with and in 2021 they were married. Today they are raising support to return to Romania where they will be planting churches in an area of Romania that is one of the most unevangelized. As part of church planting, they will be doing children's ministry, evangelism, and social outreaches. They will also be fostering medically fragile/hard-to-adopt children.
Sever and Cathy Gonciulea are current missionaries serving in Romania. Both Sever and Cathy are graduates of the missions course at Louisiana Baptist University. They served their internship at Victory Baptist Church in Anaheim, California. They have two daughters and one son.
