The Fisher Missionaries
Each of the Fisher's Personal Stories
Find out how each family members made the very important decision to accept Christ as her/his Savior and Lord: Marti invited Christ into her life as a pre-teen at summer camp; Dale made his decision in Kenya while working in the Peace Corps; and Anna, Andrew, and Adah came to know God in a personal way as a child.
Hopefully, these testimonies enable you to see and feel how God has worked in each of their lives. If you've not yet made the decision to make Christ an important part of your life — to become your personal Savior — the Fishers encourage you to decide today. Please contact any of them if you'd like to find out how you can do this.
Dale "I grew up in a Christian home, attended Sunday school when I was small, joined a church, and went to small-group Bible studies. God was there, but my life was so out of focus that I didn't see Him. I was seeking meaning and purpose in life and thought that I was a Christian. But I felt that I still lacked something. I used to get mad at people, have outbursts of anger, and be sarcastic. I kept going to a mainline denomination church, even through college. But I never remembered hearing the gospel . . .

Marti "Usually when I begin speaking, folks say, 'You aren't from California, are you?' and usually guess that I might be from Texas. Well, in fact, I am from Virginia. Yes, I'm a Southern gal and I don't think that will change. Born to parents who were 15–30 years older than my friends' parents, I was faithfully taken to church where I loved getting new links on my Sunday school attendance pin.

Anna "I'll never forget a very important event in my life. I was only two-and-a-half when my mom and dad took turns reading a book to me about a little boy who grew up in a special way — spiritually. I told my parents that I wanted to know more about spiritual growth, so my parents led me in a prayer, one that invited Jesus to come into my life and into my heart. The next day my mommy asked me where Jesus was and I pointed to my heart. I haven't doubted His presence since."
Andrew "I began my walk with Christ as my personal Lord and Savior when I was four years old. My older sister helped walk me through a special prayer one evening in my Southern California bedroom. I was too young to truly understand the full impact of what it might have meant to invite Jesus into my life. Months later, my family moved to Nairobi, Kenya, where my parents had been called by God to teach and train pastors with Cru. Growing up in Kenya, I attended church there regularly. . . (read more)."
Adah "There's no doubt that I was truly blessed to have gotten to know Jesus Christ when I was only five years old. We had hopped on a train to take our summer vacation when our family was then living in Kenya. One night, while we were saying our evening prayers on the train, I asked Jesus to come into my life and personally pay for my sins. Since then, I've been continually learning more and more about God and how I can continually live to serve, worship, and adore Him."
