About Us


The Lord Jesus Christ arrested the Burkholder’s hearts in July 1987 at an old fashioned tent meeting. In a few short years we clearly sensed the Lord calling us away from our life time career of farming in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. We sold out in following Christ into a lifetime calling of missions. June 1993 we were sent out by Faith Mennonite Fellowship (our home church) as well as Olive Branch Mennonite Mission board to the Caribbean island of Grenada. There we served as a missionary pastor in a mission church for 12+ years. More recently we served 6 month in Indonesia with Christian Aid Ministries in tsunami relief work in the years of 2006 & 2007.

We moved from USA to Chiang Mai, Thailand August 3, 2008 and joined the existing IGo staff here. We are serving as director of the IGo Macedonian Teaching Ministry. This includes scheduling the MTM seminars, organizing teaching teams as well as working out all the logistics of each seminar. Raymond also serves a part time teacher at the IGo Bible Institute. He teaches two, three week terms each year. Naomi and Jana serve as week-end cooks at the Bible Institute.

Our hearts continue to beat after Christs heart to seek and save the lost, especially for the ends of the earth. Our hearts also are burdened for local church revival. We believe that missions is hid in a first love for Jesus Christ. Missions truly is hid in revival. Please do pray for us as many opportunities come our way for revival meetings and missions conferences both in USA & Internationally.
