SERVING IN: Nicaragua, Central America
MINISTRY FOCUS: Church Planting, Evangelism
Mark and Kevin Randall have been serving on the mission field since 1994. They have served in the Philippines, London and South Africa and are currently serving in Nicaragua.
Their vision is inspired by the Word of God, Isaiah 61: ‘The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.’
After years of building relationships, establishing a ministry presence and laying a spiritual foundation, the Lord led Mark to plant a church at La Boquita, a fishing village nestled along the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. Mark is actively involved in the community through a variety of surfing activities such as surf camps and contests. The core of the ministry includes evangelism and discipleship and are accomplished through the preaching of God’s Word, Bible Studies, prayer and fellowship.
The Randalls work alongside the Nicaraguan community to help facilitate life sustaining projects such as digging wells to provide clean water, providing water purifiers, hosting medical clinics and partnering with others to build schools and other needed resources.
Kevin teaches sewing and quilting classes to women, enabling them to learn skills to help support their families. Currently, they are making lap quilts for cancer patients and others in need of care and comfort. She also helps individuals with disabilities by providing resources and instruction to help them reach their potential and fulfill their purpose in life. Kevin and Leah, her daughter, also have a ministry named Living Beyond the Edge, inspiring women to live courageously and wholly engaged in God’s purpose.
The Randalls also have a food bank ministry which provides groceries and other essential items to orphans, widows, disabled persons and others in desperate need.
