Jordan and Rebecca

Fullness of Life Church-Taiwan

Jordan and Rebecca lead a Christian and Missionary Alliance church plant in Jung Li, Taiwan.

In the spring of 2005, June of 2006, and summer of 2008, we sent groups to minister with them. It was a great blessing both to them and to us. Our teams were able to share testimonies in church, lead VBS, and eat lots of authentic Chinese food. We then had the blessing of hosting groups from Taiwan in the spring of 2007 and the summer of 2009. We were blessed to have them serve with us in a variety of ministries!

Tim and Penny Iverson



Tim and Penny are seeking to show God's love in their community through teaching English in the public schools and through their coffee house ministry called The Lighthouse.

They have provided a small glimpse into what their community is like:

In this south-central region of Taiwan, near the western coast, Christians make up only 0.1% of the population. YuanChang consists of several small villages with a total population of 32,000; yet has only one small Christian congregation. This is one of the least-reached areas of Taiwan; and working class people, like the majority of those living in our township, have been the hardest to reach with the Gospel. It is a spiritually dark place.


Peggy Drake

Burkina Faso


Peggy was born in Dubuque, IA, where she spent the first six months in an orphanage before being adopted by Ray and Ruth Drake. She was born without a left hand but that did not keep her from becoming a nurse, with a nursing degree from Crown College and a Master's degree from ATS. In September 1980, Peggy entered the mission field and started learning a tribal language, Bobo Madare, in a small village called Santidougou. She spent her first term doing medical work out of a mud hut for several years. A clinic was later built and Peggy served there until that was turned over to the government. Together with her nursing partner, Jetty Stouten, Peggy serves in full-time medical work through the Alliance. Recently Peggy had her consecration service in the Marietta Alliance Church and became a licensed chaplain.
