Jonathan and Teresa Kiehl, and their six children, Moses, Elijah, Micah, Isaac, Gemma, and John are currently serving in Peru, having previously lived as missionaries in Villa de Juarez, Coahuila, Mexico and General Cepeda, Coahuila, Mexico. They decided to sell everything to become foreign missionaries in June 2012 after attending their first short-term mission trip to Mexico with FMC. After tasting what life could be like when dedicated to serving our Lord and spreading the Gospel message, they knew that they were being called to give their lives over completely to foreign missions.
“It was the scariest and greatest calling we could ever have received and we have never regretted the decision, not even for a second. We love living life as Catholic foreign missionaries! It is the BEST life!”
Our family’s missionary journey began in May 2012 after a short-term mission trip to Mexico. What began as an adventure and desire to bring Jesus to others has became one of the hardest yet most fulfilling decision we have ever made. Our 18-month-old son, Ezekiel, who was born after only two months at our first mission post (3/13/13) in General Cepeda, Mexico, died in a tragic accident at our second mission post in Juarez, Mexico, on September 8, 2014. His death has brought us to a deeper relationship with our Lord, and a greater desire to share him with others. Our mission continues in Pucacaca, Peru with more faith and love than ever. To God be the Glory for ever and ever!!!!
