Our names are Gary and Connie Burkett.
A little about Gary first:
Gary grew up in the Louisville, Ky area and has been serving the Lord for over 30 years. In 2001, at the age of 42, he went on his first mission trip to Honduras to construct a church building. While there in Honduras he decided that mission work was something that he wanted to be involved in. Over the next several years, Gary traveled both to Honduras and around the U.S. doing mission work through construction projects. In the spring of 2007 he traveled to Africa on an evangelistic trip and received confirmation that mission work in evangelism is what God was calling him to. He has since traveled around the world to many countries sharing to Gospel.
And for Connie:
Connie is from the Louisville area and has been involved in ministry and mission work almost as long as Gary. She also has traveled to Honduras, doing both construction work and teaching women in local churches. While at home, she is active in home Bible studies, teaching at local halfway houses for women, and church related activities. She is also responsible for running the administrative end of their mission organization. Connie has accompanied Gary on multiple trips and has traveled both to Africa and India. She shares the same passion with Gary; the desire to share the Gospel of Jesus with lost people and see them surrender their lives to Him.
Our desire is to see the lost find salvation through Jesus Christ.
Thus the ministry “Kanisa’s Call”, our mission organization, was born. We are independent missionaries and are not affiliated with any mission group and so our funding comes through “grass-roots” efforts. The vision of our ministry is two fold:
First, to spread the Gospel of Jesus to the world.
Second, to equip and encourage indigenous pastors to carry on the work of Christian discipleship.
“Our heart is to go where no one else wants to go; to travel deep into the jungles, high into the mountains, and far out into the wilderness, finding the forgotten and overlooked people of the world and sharing the Good News of salvation with them. It is both exciting and fulfilling to be involved in the work of God”.
