Matt and Nuria Leighton are missionaries in Barcelona, Spain. Matt with his colleague, Steve Phillips, are pastoring an Evangelical church just outside the city and working hard to promote theological education among the Spanish churches and pastors. While Steve is doing most of the pastoral work, Matt is chiefly involved with Christian education.
Steve and Eugenia Montgomery are veteran missionaries now living in Lousiana where Steve is pastor of a small church. Steve was called to the ministry while serving in the US Navy during World War II, and the people God called him to reach were the Japanese he was then fighting. After several years in Japan, he and his wife moved to Brazil to minister among the large Japanese community in that country. Over time, they branched out to other ministries, and have planted several churches in Brazil. Because of age and health concerns they moved back to the States a few years ago.
