Matias, Rebekah, & Lily Mancilla in Argentina
Matias and Rebekah Mancilla, along with their daughter Lily, are missionaries in the southern part of the Santa Fe province of Argentina. Their main focus is to develop and carry out ministry to children through neighborhood Bible clubs, summer VBS, and camp programs in conjunction with local churches. Matias grew up in Argentina and was directly impacted by a child believing the Gospel—his own brother. This began the process of his family coming to know Jesus. For this reason, Matias and Rebekah have a passion to reach children, knowing that boys and girls who know Jesus are strong witnesses and prayer warriors for their families.
Fred, Lydia, Isaac, Josiah, Caleb, Gabriel, and Levi Holcomb in Alaska.
Fred, Lydia and their five boys are a missionary family working with Mission Aviation Repair Center in Alaska. Fred Holcomb felt God’s undeniable call to missionary aviation in 2012. He left his previous occupations of excavating and construction, to follow this new trail in obedience. He, along with his wife, Lydia, and their five boys, moved from Fayetteville, PA to Bolivar, MO in 2013 to begin training with a mission aviation program. Through this training Fred became a licensed pilot and aviation mechanic. In February of 2020, Fred and his family received the call to work with Mission Aviation Repair Center (MARC) in Alaska and in May 2020 they moved to just south of Anchorage, AK. Fred’s work with MARC includes both flying missionaries and supplies in and out of villages.
Miriam & Alex Reimer in Northern Ireland
Miriam Reimer is a missionary with Bible Centered Ministries International at the Northern Ireland branch. BCMI’s primary ministry focus is evangelism to children via kids clubs, community outreach, and residential camps – weeklong every week of the summer and weekends during term-time. Miriam’s role is in administration, finance, and general maintenance at BCM Ireland’s residential property, as well as any other small bits and bobs that need to be done. She helps work on the background processes that help make everything run smoothly and effectively. A bit about Miriam: She is originally from California, but went to University in Upstate New York (where she met Laurie Parsons while studying abroad in South East Asia). After 4 years in a corporate job after graduation, she felt the Lord was telling her it was time to make due on her lifelong desire to serve others for His kingdom, so she quit her job and moved to Germany to work as a missionary doing administration for short-term teams throughout Europe. While there, she met her husband Alex! He also works as a missionary, but in filmmaking! Miriam knew her time in Germany was coming to a close, and through a friend was connected with BCM. And so, in November 2021, after getting engaged, Miriam moved to Northern Ireland to start working with BCM. Miriam and Alex currently live in Belfast, Ireland.
Kelsey McHugh in Honduras
Kelsey works at a girl’s home in Honduras and is currently in the process of adopting 5 girls who are living in her home. Adoption is very difficult in Honduras and takes years to finalize the process, but this is something the Lord has put on her heart. She wants to give these children a real family and stability. The 4 oldest girls are all in school. During the week while the girls are at school, Kelsey is usually busy running errands, helping with the new women’s ministry, and spending some time with her soon to be 1 1/2 year old.
