Doug and Bethany Sondergaard
Pastor Sondergaard writes: "My family and I are excited to be sharing Christ in Nyssa, Oregon. Nyssa is a rural community with a deeply religious history but little to no interest in the truth of God's Word. One of the ways the Lord has allowed me to connect with our community is through working part-time at a local cattle ranch. We have also seen the Lord working in the hearts of the people He brings to us as we minister to them through one on one discipleship, faithful preaching and teaching of the Word, and developing individual relationships that produce lasting fruit."
