Josiah and Ashley met back in 2006 in high school in Houston, TX. They tied the knot in 2014 and moved to Austin shortly after. God began to stir in their hearts to share the gospel in East Austin. They dedicated all their free time to learn how to share their faith and make disciples in Austin. On a trip abroad, God told both of them that they were to move to the nations and to join the Barcelona team.
Shortly after getting married in the spring of 2016, God told us to move to East Austin and to care for our neighborhood with the gospel. One day God gave John a vision of the two of us overseas doing ministry together. Julia was nervous about moving away from Austin, so she prayed and asked God to heal her of arthritis and to bring us a team who would continue to reach the lost overseas. God answered BOTH of those prayers within weeks!
