There are also new beginnings as Bill Kehler, outgoing field director and Ester Fehr, radio host announced their engagement earlier in September. They were married on October 20, 2022 in Hacienda Verde, Bolivia. Following their wedding, they will take a three-month sabbatical away from their ministry responsibilities and another 9 months of limited ministry duties as they focus on building a good foundation for their marriage and their family. We invite you to pray for Bill and Ester as they begin their marriage and adjust to life as a new family which includes Ester’s children Danae, Tyson, Isabella and Marcus.


Pray for the MEM Team as they adjust to new leadership and shifts in responsibilities.
