Claire surrendered her life to Jesus during Covid. As the crushing weight of sin lifted off her chest she said, “Jesus, I’ll go anywhere you want, do anything you want. I’m yours!” Now four years later, she’s living in the Middle East sharing with Muslims the good news that has transformed her.
Claire’s from West Michigan and she’s back in West Michigan to tell us the amazing things God is doing among Muslims and to raise further support for a new Middle Eastern country her team will be launching into this year.
Claire shares about the night she desperately needed to know she was forgiven. It was the night she was transformed, and it included sharing with her mom all the ways she’d been deceiving her. Then, God broke Claire’s heart for those who’ve never heard the gospel. And from her broken heart she cried, “Here am I Lord, send me!”
Next, Claire shares the stories of the young Muslim man and little Muslim boy who in this last year have both embraced Jesus because of Claire’s “Yes!” And last, if you feel like God could never love you, never forgive you because of what you’ve done, Claire gets it, and she has words of eternal hope for you!
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 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.
