Missionary Spotlight:

Derek & Shannon Ebbers - Romania

In Romania, with the Ebbers Family.

“Then in fellowship sweet,
We will sit at his feet,
Or we’ll walk by his side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.”

We are the Derek & Shannon Ebbers family. We have 5 children. Jessalyn 11, Aaron 9, Isaac 6, Elijah 4, and Hannah 2. In Isaiah 41:10, the Lord has promised to go with us and uphold us with His righteous right hand. So here we are in Romania, trusting Him to do what He has said He will do. We arrived on July 13, 2007 and we plan to make Romania our home as long as the Lord will have us here. Our initial year has been spent immersing ourselves in the language and culture. As we have now completed our first year, Derek has begun teaching 2 English as a second language classes, three days a week, as a means to build relationships, identify & train leaders, and ultimately facilitate church planting. . Our goal is not only to start and ESL program in our community, but also to train others to teach English in various locations around the country and be a support to them. Derek has already been assisting a church plant with their ESL program in another city. Shannon’s primary role is helpmeet to Derek. She is also building relationships with other young moms in the community. We have found there to be many right in our own neighborhood! As a family, we want to be available to other young families who may be, along with us, struggling yet striving to honor God through our marriages and the way we raise our children. We consider it a privilege to serve our Lord in Romania.
