Media presentation: Mortenson video
The Mortensons are from Pensacola, FL, and they responded to God’s call on their lives during their church’s missions conference in 2015. For 10 years Nate was a Deputy Sheriff working in patrol and the Criminal Investigations Division. And as a family they have tried to make themselves available to serve in many ministries at their home church (West Florida Baptist Church). They have served as leaders of the Wednesday night children’s program, have been substitute Sunday School teachers, sang in the choir and were leaders in the church’s annual kid’s crusade.
The Mortenson’s completed deputation and arrived on the field at the end of May 2018 and began studying the Spanish language. After completing formal language learning in May of 2019, they will become more involved church administration, and helping in the children’s ministries as well as other team outreach ministries. Also as the Lord opens the door Nate desires to teach Bible in the public schools of our community.
