Ryan & Sarah Schmitz
When Ryan was a student at Indiana Wesleyan University, he felt led of God to go and serve when he learned about the needs to minister internationally. Sarah felt God’s call to commit her life to full-time missions work while on a mission trip to Haiti when she was a senior in high school.
Ryan and Sarah have been long-term missionaries with Global Partners in Nicaragua since 2009. They serve the Nicaraguan church by hosting short-term mission teams in order for individuals, families, and communities to learn more about Christ and experience his redemptive power. They build relationships with the Nicaraguans through economic development and reaching out to young students with the hope of Jesus.
