Adrian and Bernardeth Bobb Kelly

The east coast of Nicaragua is one of the poorest area of an already poor country. That's where Dr. Bernardeth Kelly Bent and pastor Adrián Bobb provide public health and medical services, as well as spiritual and pastoral education, to the population. They are the founders of Tabitha’s House Bluefields (THB), a ministry that works in partnership with the Moravian Church in Nicaragua. They have two children, Abebja and Abayomi.

Adrián and Bernardeth serve in partnership with Tabitha House.

Pastor Mark and Miriam Vellinga

Mescalero Reformed Church in Mescalero, New Mexico is richly blessed with a wonderful cultural heritage, and the church is committed to both maintaining its cultural identity and to following and serving Jesus. This is paramount to who the Mescalero people are.

Mark Vellinga has been called to be the pastor of Mescalero Reformed Church. He will be working to minister to the Mescalero community in a way that honors their Native American heritage and demonstrates how that heritage shapes their faith. The integration of Mescalero cultural heritage will be key for effective ministry—both for the congregation of Mescalero Reformed and the larger community.
