Joel and Andi McMartin
Ethnos 360, Senegal
Joel grew up in Haiti as a missionary kid. He is the son of Bruce and Cindy McMartin. Andi grew up in Portland where her father pastors a church. They met at Multnomah Bible College and were married in 2003. They have two children, Ethan and Tyler.
Ever since they were married, they knew that they wanted to be missionaries. God placed a desire in their hearts to work with people around the world who have never had the opportunity to hear the Word of God. After years of training, they departed for West Africa in 2011. Over their first term on the field God filled them with a love for West Africa and especially for the small church he has established there. They now serve in various roles including working alongside local churches and pastors in the formation of an African missionary training program, supporting missionaries who are out in isolated locations, and mentoring newly arriving missionaries through language and culture study. In their ministry they use the Wolof language and work to build relationships with local people from Senegal as well as building discipling relationships.
