Hello to you! Thanks for stopping by this corner of Ethnos360 to read our blog.
We are the Shaiebly family. Mike & Lauren both born and in raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We were married on an extremely hot July evening. So hot that when we left the church for pictures the men’s boutonnieres wilted….yep we were pretty thankful we chose air conditioned church over the outside ceremony that day.
We have three outrageously cute children: Eleanor, Lydia & Gabriel.
We are excited to be missionaries with Ethnos360. We had started on this process back in 2015 and as of this month (Feb 2019) we are now official.
So, since we are official they gave us a blog. We have spent two years at New Tribes Bible Institute Jackson, Michigan. Where we studied the word of God each day and were challenged to live with a people group who need the word of God translated into their heart language.
After Bible school we moved our family up to the missions training center in Ontario, Canada. At Emanate we were a part of a three thread course that has given us tools for cross cultural church planting and ministry.
We are now in the ministry of Partnership Development. Building our home team of believers who are with us in prayer and financial support to go to Papua New Guinea in 2021.
We look forward to including you in the process as we write about life, ministry and our Gods faithfulness on our blog.
Mike & Lauren Shaiebly
