We are Adam and Jennifer Balduff and along with our youngest daughter, Sydney (age 16), and we have been called to serve as missionaries in Tapachula, Mexico with Mission on the Move (M.O.M.). We work with dedicated, Christian men and women from the local community to help care for abandoned, orphaned and vulnerable children.

Originally from Sandusky, Ohio; we moved to Richmond Hill, Georgia in 2007, settled in and found jobs and a local church. Jennifer worked as a nurse and clinical nurse manager for a 19 years and Adam worked for the local school district as a social studies teacher and pursued his Local Pastor License with the United Methodist Church and both served in a variety of servant-leadership roles with their home church: The Waterfront Church.

After a number of short-term mission trips to Peru and Honduras, God shone His light on wha tour calling was to be. This all happened unexpectedly while at the M.O.M. site in Honduras in February 2017. When God has your attention, he speaks and you experience peace. This is exactly what we felt.....and since we were at a M.O.M. site, we discovered there was an opening for site directors for the Tapachula mission site and applied. Since then, we have completed Cross-Cultural Training atThe Center for Inter-cultural Trainingin North Carolina, read a number of books on missions, and attend Spanish language schools in Guatemala and full immersion in Mexico. We are now living in Mexico, on the mission, full-time and return to the United States a few times a year in order to renew our Travel Visas, speak at supporting churches and find new churches to share the mission and vision of M.O.M. with.

We also have children living in the states as well as all of our parents, siblings and many extended family members. Living in Georgia is one daughter, Samantha (age 22); a son-in-law, Jordan; a grandson, Mason (age 6 months); and a son, Grant (age 18).

As we pray everyday for God's continued guidance on our lives and that the Holy Spirit moves in us to push aside our own desires, pride and fears; we seek to fulfill our guiding scripture found in Matthew 25:35-36 to feed the hungry, provide drink for the thirsty, invite the stranger, cloth the naked, attend the sick and visit those in prison and share the Gospel of Christ with them.
