"As a child I had an interest in medical missions. During college, God continued to call me into missions by sending missionaries into my life that kept the vision alive." Lowell
"As a teen I thought it would be such an honor if God would ask me to serve Him in another country. I believe He put the desire in my heart for missions work." Robin
Lowell and Robin served as compassionate ministry missionaries for one year in Ethiopia with the Church of the Nazarene. In 2007 they had the opportunity to visit Haiti. God has now opened the door for them to return to Haiti as Global Partners' career missionaries. Their desire is to use comprehensive community health and development as a means to evangelize, plant churches, and develop church growth within Haiti.
Lowell and Robin have three children: Lance ('91), Cassandra ('93), and Madalyn ('07).
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you." (Jeremiah 29:11-14a NIV)

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV)
Family / testimony
I’ve been blessed to be surrounded by church and family members who have invested in my life and nurtured me in a relationship with Christ. At the age of 10, I received Jesus as my Savior at a Billy Graham crusade where I first understood my personal need for Jesus. At the age of 13, I began attending summer youth camps, which had a significant impact in my life. The will of God became the greatest longing of my heart. The Lord later taught me that His will for my life is a relationship with Him in which I love Him with all my heart, soul, and mind.
How did you end up where you are?
I went on a first mission trip while I was in college. This experience was life-changing and brought a great desire for

As a junior in college, Jessica felt the Holy Spirit impress upon her the word reconciliation, and He clearly told her that God's call upon her life would involve the restoration of broken relationships, all of which stem from a broken relationship with God. At the time she did not recognize this as a call to missions. However, that summer she went on a short-term mission trip to Albania and discovered an enormous need for reconciliation between differing people groups, political parties, rich and poor, and men and women. All the brokenness was a result of not knowing Christ and His power to overcome sin's impact upon the world. God showed her how much He loves the Albanian people and wants to bring them into relationship with Him. Jessica sensed her call to go to Albania as an ambassador of Christ with the message of reconciliation with God.
In October 2012 Global Partners appointed Jessica as an intern missionary to Albania. It is her desire to see Albanians enter into a right relationship with God that will transform their lives, beginning the restoration process that reaches fulfillment when Jesus returns to live forever with His people on earth.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:17-18 NIV).
