Congratulations, Matt and April!


Puerto Rico’s newest GMI missionary is Matt Sykes who was approved by the board on October 20, 2017. The next day, he and April (Lorenz) Sykes were married. Congratulations to this couple as they continue to serve the Lord together in Puerto Rico. Pray for them as they begin their new life together in less than ideal conditions as they are still working to recover from the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria in September. Matt will continue to work as the Mission Adventure Team Director at Camp Caribe and he will also help April with her ministries in a nearby neighborhood with at-risk youth and as they both work alongside Juana Diaz Bible Church.

Matt had spent three summers in Puerto Rico working at Camp Caribe before taking a one-year internship position under Jon Marshall in 2015 working with the Mission Adventure Team. When Jon moved to the States to pastor a church, Matt was offered the position of the Mission Adventure Team Director. It was at Camp Caribe where Matt met April Lorenz who would become his wife.
