Jordan & Kristin Andre // December 8, 2016

 

The story of how we got here is quite incredible. Jordan knew he was called to Africa after watching a documentary about Africa on TV at age 11. Kristin was drawn more to the inner-city and felt called when she first visited Los Angeles at age 15. But in college, when she learned of life in Africa through a project for a leadership class and knew that was where God wanted her.

The two of us met in middle school, started dating in high school and were married right after graduating from college. At that time, the Lord clearly called us to Los Angeles.

Then we met Francis Chan.

He challenged us to begin living life as if it were for God and His glory. Not long after that challenge, God allowed us both to step foot on the beautiful red dirt of Africa and ever since then we’ve been preparing for our return.

We lived in Moshi, Tanzania in 2010 (back when it was still just the two of us, as preparation for what was to come) and then spent time living in Los Angeles again, where our son, Moses, was born. God clearly called us back to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (where our roots are) to plug into a loving and supportive church family who would send us out for the long term. Anthem Church has been just that and more over the years and we are now preparing to head to Nairobi, Kenya with two kids (our little girl, Zuri, joined our family in 2014) to serve with Africa Inland Mission.

Anthem Global Mission Update – May 2018

A couple weeks ago we were discussing the topic of forgiveness. Keyvan, a man there, was showing signs of extreme discomfort and conviction. He kept looking down at the table and shaking his head. He finally said there is someone he knows that he just can't forgive. When he said that, the Holy Spirit clearly said to me, "Ask him if he can't forgive, or if he doesn't want to forgive?"

Anthem Global Mission Update – April 2018

Seven months ago we sat down individually with our 5 children and told them we had decided they would be attending a nearby, public school for the current academic year. Prior to moving here, our kids had only been home-schooled in the States. Knowing that our children’s first experience in a public school would be in a language that they did not even know, in a country they had still not adjusted to, was a major leap of faith for them and us as parents...

Anthem Global Mission Update – March 2018

We will be in full-time language and culture study for our first year and are already finishing up our first of nine units. In addition to daily classes and homework, we are also out in the community every day practicing our new language skills. We are encouraged by how much we have learned already- being able to introduce our selves, share information about our lives, and are able to communicate at a basic level in the community. We’ve also already met some really neat people doing some really amazing things for Jesus, which is so encouraging and exciting!
