Edmund and Cherie are the parents of three adult children and four grandchildren: Edmund and wife, Joanna, with Edmund James and Adrienne; Mary and husband, Jason Houston, with Isabella and Alexander James; and Ana.


Please pray for Rev. Edmund and Deaconess Cherie as they serve in Honduras and Nicaragua. Please ask God to continue blessing them both with good health and protection. Pray that God sustains them and helps them transition as they begin this next chapter in their journey of missionary service to which God has called them.
