Becker Children on Mission 2018
Two of our children are currently on mission this summer. Mahala is serving in Mongolia, and Micaiah is in Mexico. Both are serving through Teen Mission International.
Mitch has been a believer in Christ since age 10. Raised in the rural Plains of Colorado, Mitch attended college and then joined the Navy, completing a 26-year career in nuclear submarines. Melinda was also saved as a young girl. She was raised in the country, the foothills of Northern California, and attended college in San Diego where she and Mitch met. Married since 1995, the Lord blessed the Beckers with seven children and 15 character-building Navy moves before their transition to civilian life in 2015.
During this transitional time, God began to impress His desire for the Beckers to serve Him in a more intentional way. Concurrently, Mitch and Melinda read Francis and Lisa Chan's book, You and Me Forever, which resulted in renewed urgency for spreading the gospel message. They began to pray for opportunities to serve where Mitch’s technical talents could be utilized and where the family could contribute to the mission.
Inspired as a child by a visiting Trans World Radio missionary, Mitch was captivated by stories of programming that leapt over political boundaries and crossed cultural and economic barriers, strengthening the persecuted and encouraging the faithful. From that early experience, and having esteemed the ministry for decades, Mitch and Melinda applied for missionary service and continue to see God’s confirming fingerprints throughout the TWR appointment process.
Once fully funded, the Becker family will serve at KTWR on the Pacific island of Guam. Mitch will serve as Facilities Manager while Melinda cares for and homeschools the children. As a team of nine, the Becker M&M's are excited to contribute to broadcasting the Gospel of Hope to the nations.
Praise that in the support-raising process we have been able to reconnect with many old friends. It has been a wonderful reminder of how the Lord provided so many amazing fellowship opportunities throughout our Navy career with people who are like family to us.
Our daughter, Mahala, and son, Micaiah will both be going on two-month mission trips this Summer through Teen Mission International. Mahala will be going to Mongolia, and Micaiah will serve in the Yucatan (Mexico). Please pray for them as they raise support and for safety and effectiveness in the field. (...and for Mom who will be without her two biggest helpers!)
