Missionaries with FamilyLife

We are so excited to share with you our passion for marriages and families and how that has led us to join the staff of FamilyLife in Little Rock, Arkansas. While attending a Weekend to Remember event (in 2008) we were presented with the need and the opportunity to join the staff of FamilyLife. That evening we shared with our Pastor the possibility of joining the ministry. And he confirmed what we had been feeling but couldn’t express.

“Abraham and Deborah, I think that this would be a perfect match for you as a couple. I can see how your skills, experience and passion intersect with the vision and mission of FamilyLife.” - Pastor Jon Babcock

And thus began the adventure. We joined the staff of FamilyLife and relocated to Little Rock, where their headquarter offices are located, in May of 2012. 

We’re excited about what God is doing through the ministry of FamilyLife. And we’re especially excited to see how God molds, shapes, and equips us to use our abilities to help build stronger marriages and families, one home at a time. The mission of FamilyLife is "to effectively develop godly marriages and families who change the world one home at a time." This is done through various tools including:

  • Resources; including books, videos, cds, devotionals, games, small group studies, etc.

FamilyLife is actually only a branch of the ministry of Cru. Cru is the world's largest missionary organization with over 25,000 full-time staff members, hundreds of thousands of volunteers. Cru has a ministry presence in 190 countries, which represents 99.6 percent of the world's population.

Fighting for families,
