Russell and Sonya Schweighardt have been married 29 years and have been adoption and orphan advocates for over 20 years. Their hearts desire has been to reach the unreachable and to share the love of Jesus with the least of these.
Sonya has been given a passion to work with children and women in all walks of life. Russell’s heart is to pour into boys and men to help them to understand what it means to be a godly man. God has blessed Russell and Sonya with 15 amazing children (3 birthed from the womb, 12 birthed from the heart).
Their hearts are passionate about missions and sharing the gospel message through being the hands and feet of Jesus. With over half of their children from Africa, the Lord has drawn her and Russell to international missions in Africa. “Go!” has been the motto in their home. Go and be the hands and feet and do for God with what has been placed in your hand.
