Jonathan & Hannah Oakes
Jonathan and Hannah met in the 8th grade and have been best friends ever since. Born and raised in Northeast Kansas, they were married after graduating from Kansas State University and have been blessed with five amazing sons: Alden, John, Nohl, Joseph, Samuel, and Maria-Cecilia.
Hannah worked in the nonprofit sector before embracing the challenges and joys of full time motherhood including homeschooling their boys. Jon worked for several years in engineering before transitioning to the business and facility director position for their home parish, Holy Cross in Overland Park, KS. He’s also had the opportunity to lead the Stewardship program and more recently to work fostering a culture of evangelization in their community.
Deeply convicted of the call to share the good news, God has been leading them down the path of gospel poverty for some time. They found Family Missions Company while seeking ways to live out this calling. They’re beyond excited to partner with you to bring the good news of God’s love to the ends of the earth and fulfill Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations. Simply put, they seek to live with, love, and serve the poor and unreached in order to witness to the love of God and share the good news of the Gospel. They thank you for your continued prayers and support and may God bless you abundantly.
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
