Michael & Veronica Henderson
In 2015, Michael and Veronica and their seven children – Michael Jr., Mariam, Kevin, Thomas, Lydia, Sarah, and Bernadette – answered God’s call to sell their home and their belongings and leave the familiarity of home and family behind to follow the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
Their first mission post was General Cepeda, Mexico, serving the poor and, in particular, the young men of the small desert town. It seemed that they would be serving here for a long time because their ministries, such as the men’s workout ministry, were flourishing. God had different plans for them, however. In prayer, Michael heard the Lord very clearly ask them to further discern where the family was supposed to serve in the future. Michael says he heard the Lord say, “You never asked me where I want your family to be next. What if I want you to go where they have never heard My name?” After discerning this further as a family and with the guidance of the FMC directors, they felt the Lord asking them to go to Asia.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:8-9
They arrived in Asia in July of 2017, and are currently working hard to learn the language. They encounter people on a daily basis who do not know the Lord. Please pray for them as they strive to learn the language so they will be able to speak to others of God’s love in word and not just action!
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” – Proverbs 3:5-6
