Michael and Ruth H.
Michael and Ruth H. serve as members of the Christian Muslim Relations Team, having served previously for nearly 10 years in South Asia. During this time they lived and worked in a Muslim community. This deep background experience is critical to understanding Muslims and gives them something to draw upon as they equip others for fruitful and life-giving relationships with Muslims. During those years in South Asia, they were devoted to prayer as one of their primary ministry functions. Their gifts and experience help the CMRT continue to grow in prayer and equipping others in prayer as a vital part of mission.
Andres Prins has traveled, studied, and worked in various North African and Middle Eastern countries over the last 35 years. In 1988, he and his wife were commissioned by Mennonite churches in South America to serve Christ as teachers in Muslim societies, seeking to engage in hospitality, dialogue, witness, and peacemaking. Since 2012, they have resided in Lancaster, Pa. They feel deep gratitude to God for the many lives they have seen Him beautify and transform!
