"We love because He first loved us "

Thomas and Jelena Maldonado

Marriage on mission

After meeting in Taizé, France, Thomas proposed at a monastery in Belgium with the wedding soon to follow in Estonia. Their marriage is founded and built upon a deep abiding individual and mutual relationship with Jesus.  Answering the call to "be set apart" they have decided to devote their lives and their livelihood to share the Good News of Jesus with all whom they encounter. The peaceful joy of obedience is evident in how they love and serve the Lord through prayer and music.

 Living a life of prayer 

Grounded in the Word of God and flexible to the Spirit of God, Thomas is most often found in community loving and serving people.  He spent  20 years in the business world living out his faith in Jesus within the landscape industry. After years of fruitful time "taming the earth and making disciples" Thomas has said "yes" to the call to be a minister of the Gospel as a missionary of prayer.
