Who are we?
We are Mark and Sherry Chua, a husband and wife team with two young children. We first met by serving on a worship team together in 2010. We have continued to serve together in college ministry, youth ministry, worship, and missions work. We are California natives who are so excited to serve the Lord in the big metropolitan city of Manila, Philippines.
What are we doing in the Philippines and with whom?
Back in 2013, the Lord had laid on our hearts that we would live and serve in the Philippines long-term. The following year, we started partnering with Calvary Chapel Manila and began visiting for short-term missions work nearly every year since then. CC Manila is pastored by Pastor Lito De Guzman who has a vision for church planting all over the Luzon region of the Philippines. The Lord has planted 7 churches (and counting) directly through Calvary Manila and they have been very instrumental in dozens of other church plants throughout the Philippines. We are joining the work to support in Bible-teaching, college and youth ministry, church plants, outreach, worship, and discipleship.
Who is sending us?
Calvary Nexus is our beloved home church in Camarillo, California with the vision to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. We have served with Nexus since 2010 and have both served on staff. As our sending church, they will continue to care for and support us to be effective long-term missionaries while we live and serve abroad in the Philippines. (Shoutout to our Nexus Fam! We miss you all!)
