Naomi, ISA Veritas Mission Mentor

Michael and Naomi work as missionaries among sub-Saharan African diaspora in Paris and surrounding suburbs. For the past four years, they have been developing relationships with trinket vendors in tourist sites and women working in hair salons in the 18th arrondisement of Paris. Their desire is to see people come to Christ and to help develop a passion in local churches so that local Christians can live out the gospel in their everyday lives and impact the lostness among the people from sub-Saharan Africa.  Michael and Naomi lead a weekly community home group, are involved in discipleship, and help as mission mentors for the Paris ISA-Veritas program. They love meeting people from all over the world and love sharing their work with anyone willing to volunteer.
