Already in my childhood I heard the call of God to go into missions.
So I started my adventure with God in India in 2003. I got to know my husband L. in a prayer house in New Delhi. We got married in 2005 and have three daughters by now.
Several years we were involved in a prayer and mercy ministry in Northeast India. Our hearts were always beating for Nagaland, which was still restricted to foreigners at that time.
2012 we started the Potters House in Dimapur, Nagaland. Due to its political situation Nagaland is less developed than the rest of India. There are hardly any job opportunities for young people.
Many start taking drugs or alcohol. We take in school drop outs, orphans and people with addiction problems in our living community. Most come from poor families of rice farmers in remote villages. Here in the Potters House they get to know Jesus and receive a fresh perspective for their lives. In our discipleship school, the ‘School of Destiny’ the young people learn how to live with Jesus in everyday life. After the teaching weeks we take the students on outreach to unreached places where it is often forbidden to preach the gospel (e.g. Bhutan, Myanmar, Arunachal Pradesh, etc.). From there they return with the most incredible stories how they shared the gospel and God confirmed it with signs and wonders.
In order to help the youths and their families to have a better income we try to find job trainings for them. Some are learning to become a car mechanic, electrician or tailor.
In town we go to the poor and needy to share the love of God. We focus on Muslim trash collectors and daily laborers.
In a network with local churches and ministry we conduct seminars and conferences to equip the body of Christ and are invited as guest speakers in bible schools. We do relief work in disaster hit areas like Nepal which is still recovering from the earthquake in April.
Our vision is to see revival in Nagaland and equip people to share the gospel in surrounding unreached people groups.
