The Peterson Family – Matt, Sarah, Robyn, Josephine, Seth, and Baby #4 (coming in August 2022)
We are most grateful and excited for the opportunity to join Alderwood’s supported missionaries!
Sarah, Matthew’s wife, is the youngest daughter of Manny and Glenda Fernandez, whom you have prayed for for many years. Matthew graduated with a ThM (Masters of Theology) from Dallas Theological Seminary. Matthew felt called to serve in Asia from his years as a salesman and working in the corporate world, before he met Sarah. After traveling with Manny to Asia, Matthew felt certain that the kind of training and deploying of church planters that World Link does was exactly what the Lord is leading him to do—joining the ministry, as the Lord led, six months later.
Since Covid shut everything down just when Matthew and Sarah were packing up to move to India and Matthew’s father suddenly passed away that same summer, Matthew and Sarah have been redirected to now staying in the U.S. and starting up training centers both remotely and now through modular training sessions in various countries. Matthew is beginning to travel again in person to teach and expand the ministry in India, Spain, Brazil, The Philippines, and many other countries that are on the horizon.
