Our Missionaries - Dan and Heidi Wright
Dan, Heidi, and Isaac Wright are excited to start their first term in Manila, Philippines. They have been working in cross-cultural missions since 2009, leading short-term teams to build relationships and minister to the Tarahumara people, an unreached group in central Mexico.
They are the first missionaries sent from their church, Open Bible in Kingsville, MD. The Philippines is a great fit for the Wrights as there is a need for a business manager for the team and Dan worked as a Financial Advisor/Branch Manager for the past 14 years and Heidi has business experience as well. Isaac is looking forward to attending Faith Academy and excited for the delicious fruit and unique wildlife the Philippines has to offer. Dan is an ordained Pastor with a Bible Certificate from Toccoa Falls and together with Heidi they enjoyed completing Perspectives on the World Christian Movement courses.
Spreading the joy and hope found in Jesus alone is their primary mission, but the Wright Family also has a heart for felt needs. God has prepared them for the challenges of Manila through their experiences serving the urban poor in Mexico and in their own community. They enjoy one-on-one and small group discipleship ministry and working with kids. They have been praying about the street children of Manila and hope to help create community and provide avenues of escape from human trafficking, drugs, gangs, and other hard facts of life for children on the street.
