This is our favorite clown, Michael Thayer. He is a Christian Clown in Medellin. And he also does magic tricks. We met Michael and his very understanding wife, Nichole almost a year ago. They are a great example of the purpose of this page. They have been living and serving Christ in Latin America for about 4 years.
They started in Costa Rica for Spanish language training. Then they were invited to serve as missionaries to a Spanish-Speaking Christian Church (Iglesia Cristiana de Restauracion) here in Medellin. Together with Andrew Stringer and his parents Mark and Barbara Stringer (who have been serving in Colombia for over 57+ years), they are fulfilling the Great Commission in Medellin, Colombia.
But they don’t stop there. Michael has this terrific Christian Clown Ministry, and he works together with Fundación Doctora Clown with kids in local hospitals. It probably sounds a little strange, but he takes his clowning very seriously. And he is very good at it!
In addition to all that, they are leaders in our effort to establish the first English-speaking Christian Church in Medellin. They are starting our second group Bible study this Monday night. And next Sunday, Michael will be preaching in Spanish to his church.
They are two of many thousands of folks who have been drawn to Central and South America to live and work in all sorts of ways as the Lord directs. Please keep them in your prayers. And if you want to follow and learn more about their ministry, check them out on Facebook at Thayer’s Travels.
