Who We Are

Hello! Our names are Erik and Makayla Gonzalez! Nothing remarkable sets us apart, other than a heart to be obedient and faithful to what God has called us to. We serve as missionaries in a Christian nonprofit organization called “YWAM” (Youth With A Mission.) We are missionaries in Trang, Thailand, and arrived here in Mid-July of 2022. Our commitment to YWAM Trang will keep us here for 5 years and then we will reevaluate what’s next for our missionary journey.

Our heart is to pioneer a training school that will raise up believers, disciple and equip them, and then send them out to evangelize both Thailand and the surrounding nations. Our prayer is that we will see kingdom advancement; people in love with Jesus, churches planted, and spiritual revival in places where Christ is yet not proclaimed. Our Calling is to partner with God and His Holy Spirit to see this come to pass in Thailand; “Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved.’”

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9 ESV

Jesus having satiated an un-payable ransom has freed us from the bondage of sin and death. He's done this not that we may now enjoy a newfound privilege in pursuing our own wants and desires, for in doing so we are no better than the nonbeliever; disregarding the Holy Scriptures and disobeying the Holy Spirit. Instead of desiring to be God of our own lives, Jesus leads us and has proclaimed clearly to "Go and preach into all the world.” This is a call from our king, not a suggestion, a command, and not a recommendation. Jesus as our Lord and Savior has saved us and calls the believer to a consecrated life of proclaiming to those still engulfed in darkness, "the excellencies of Him,” our beautiful Lord and Savior.
