Jerry and Karen Holte left Iowa on Thanksgiving day 2009 to begin full time missions with Children's Cup in Swaziland. The departure day was chosen as a statement of their thankfulness for the call and the opportunity to minister in a foreign land. Their roles include helping to develop and lead Global Leadership Academy, raising up national Christ-following leaders and church planters. They also lead the Church Based Discipleship program. Leadership development continues to be their heart, their calling and a great source of joy as they serve the Lord. The Holtes are blessed with four married children and six grandchildren.
