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.

With a Divine calling and a Supernatural love for the Kurds, the fourth largest people group in the Middle East, God is presenting them with the greatest Gift they could give…the Gospel of Christ.
We also support many missionaries by participating in the mission program of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through the International Mission Board, we helped support 5,444 missionaries in different countries. Our gifts and prayers resulted in 565,967 (2008 Annual Statistical Report) new believers baptized in 2008 outside of North America.
We support A21 Campaign. When confronted with the horrific statistics surrounding human trafficking, it is easy to agree on the fact that “someone should do something.” In 2007, A21 recognized the need to be that “someone” and committed to combat the injustice of human trafficking through rescuing one life at a time.
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.
