PJ is a Muslim background believer in Jesus from Central Asia, he’s a pastor leading many Muslims to Jesus. He’s with us to share how Jesus found his Muslim family and how Jesus is moving among Muslims in Central Asia. PJ’s parents were university teachers in Central Asia, and they were reached by CRU missionaries from America, Germany, and Canada in the 90’s. PJ was drawn to Jesus as he saw his father transform from an angry man to one who treated him with tenderness.
PJ shares about his now assistant pastor who once was trying so hard to earn Allah’s favor. We hear about a Saul who was transformed into a Paul, and how he’s brought his extended family to Jesus! Then how PJ meets up with police who want him to come in for questioning, how Jesus has brought many of these security people to Jesus. Next, we hear about the security agent who was sent to keep an eye on PJ’s church, and how Jesus captured his heart. And finally, how we need not fear, the gospel is unstoppable! Share this!
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says.

Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
