Ryan and Nikole and their two children, Lana and Josiah, currently work with Children’s Cup in Belize. In 2012 God began stirring their hearts for overseas missions. Ryan and Nikole visited five different countries over the next three years, seeking where the Lord was calling their family to serve. In early 2015 the Kestner's accepted God’s calling to serve with Children's Cup. They moved to Swaziland in 2016, and served with the team there before transitioning to Belize in 2017. In Belize they oversee discipleship / spiritual development programs at the care points. Ryan and Nikole have a passion for ministering together as a family. Their prayer is that God’s children all around the world would fully know and accept Christ, experience His love for them, and walk in the plans He has for their lives.
