Meet our Missionaries
Not everybody is called, or able, to sell all of their belongings and move to a foreign country. Here at Church on the Ridge, we have two families that had a very specific call to go out into the world and share the good news of the gospel. The Koetjes and Sosapavons are our full-time missionaries in the countries of Latvia and Honduras. They are giving their time and resources to serve those in need. They do not have other jobs that financially support what they are doing. It is our privilege, as a church, to be able to support them and the work they are doing for Jesus.
Ricardo & Lulu Sosapavon and their two daughters are serving other missionaries in Honduras. Ricardo’s business background is a blessing to the missionaries. Many missionaries have an abundance of training in how to be a missionary, but are less fortunate in their training of how to run that mission as a business. Ricardo is helping these missionaries put together business plans, budgets and enhancing their leadership skills.
Tom & Kat Koetje, along with their three children, are serving with Freedom 61 in Latvia. This is a program that helps trafficking victims escape from their situations. They offer rehabilitation, recovery and restoration.
