Uk and Manuela desire to lead foreign armed forces members and their families to know Jesus Christ. They work alongside national believers, encouraging them to establish a self-sustaining fellowship that grows through ministry. Their work currently focuses on Thailand.
Uk came to faith by being part of a Christian family and a Christ-centered church. He received a calling to overseas work in college.
Manuela was led to know Jesus Christ as a young adult in Germany and subsequently went to Bible School. Thereafter, she served for several years in Taiwan with a German mission before marrying Uk.
Uk and Manuela have two children, Janna and Nathaniel.
