While Jonathan was serving as a pastor at Dimond Blvd. Baptist Church in Anchorage, Alaska, the Halks met BMM missionaries to Zambia. As the missionaries discussed needs in their country, Jonathan and Clarinda realized everything dovetailed with their skills and interests. Jonathan’s leadership skills and mechanical abilities are greatly needed in Zambia. Clarinda can teach English and train widows in sewing to help them support their families. All these opportunities open doors for Bible studies.
The Halks joined BMM in 2015 and began their first term in Zambia in 2021.
