“I’ve Never Heard God Speak My Language”

That’s the reality for 200 language groups in Nigeria. They don’t have a bible in their language. They’ve still haven’t heard the good news. The Holy Spirit hasn’t filled their hearts with the love of God. Yet.

Christy Yoder and her husband Zach and their children are giving their lives in Nigeria through Wycliffe to see that every man, woman, boy, and girl in Nigeria has a chance to hear about Jesus in their heart language in this generation!

First, Christy will be at roadside stop and start playing on her phone a newly translated language. Pretty soon her phone is snatched away as people are hearing God speak their language for the first time!

Then, if you want to hear what it sounds like to have “God so loved the world to beating in your chest,” Christy bleeds it!  Next, Nigerian farmers are hearing the gospel and they are singing Jesus songs in their fields!

Then, Shawna felt completely unqualified to become co-host of Perry and Shawna Mornings. But Jesus said, “Come, walk on the water Shawna!” Last, living in the moment: Free from past regrets, free from fearing the future.

Perry LaHaie

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. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. 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

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.
