We are Joel and Amanda Griffin, we have been married for over 10 years and have two beautiful daughters Madalynn and Sophia. We were both born and raised in Northwest Georgia where we have been involved with our home church CrossPoint City in Cartersville, GA for over 10 years. God called Joel into missions as a teenager, where he was able to travel to many different countries in South America. We experienced years of waiting as we sought God and allowed Him to grow our hearts and desire to go where He has called us. As we came upon our 10 year anniversary we couldn’t think of a better way to thank God for His care of us than to give back to people He loves, so we took our first mission trip together.
Before we left, we started to feel God moving in us but we were unsure as to what He had planned. After traveling to Burkina with a team from our church in January 2016, He made it very clear what was next. After much prayer and guidance, we are excited to step out in faith and trust what God has for our family. Thinking about how we will be able to raise support for a family of four is scary, but we know God is in control and He’s got us. We will be outside of our “comfort zone” but we know that God doesn’t call us to be comfortable.
