The Schmidts

We are Kyle and Danae. We grew up in small town Western Oklahoma, and were married in 2009. We are followers of Jesus and have discovered that saying yes to Jesus is the best adventure one can ever have.

In 2012, our journey with Jesus led us to TREK, a 10 month discipleship and mission program by Mennonite Brethren Mission. We spent 7 months in Thailand, serving alongside long-term missionaries and the local church leaders. We learned what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and to disciple others. We learned that when we are fully dependent on God, our faith grows and God shows off.

After TREK, God brought us to Hillsboro, Kansas where I am serving with MB Mission in the regional office, mobilizing and coordinating other short term programs in our region. Kyle works for a general contractor for residential construction. We have awesome housemates, a young married couple like ourselves. And have recently started a new adventure in tiny living.

This year, we’ve learned that living missionally is more than going on a mission trip. We’ve learned that God doesn’t stop teaching us valuable lessons when we return from overseas missions. We’ve learned that He continues to ask us to surrender pieces of our lives to him and when we do, we find ourselves doing crazy things, like building a tiny house! But it’s also the best adventure ever!
