Morgan & Krista Serger (Obadiah, Enoch & Amos)
Morgan and Krista grew up together in the same church and served together in music and children’s ministries. They took interest in each other when Morgan was attending University of Manitoba to be a teacher and Krista was in grade twelve in high school. They were married in 2005 (one year after Krista had graduated high school). After completing his bachelor of education in 2007, Morgan and Krista moved to Thompson, Manitoba where they volunteered at Midway Bible Camp and Morgan taught grade three in the public school. Two years later in 2009 they joined Midway (formerly known as Continental Mission) as full time missionaries, working as camp director and then as general director of the mission until the end of 2016. They now live in the remote cree community of York Landing, teaching and helping the local church in many areas of ministry!
Kyla grew up in a small town in southern Manitoba. From a young age she felt the call to be a missionary and went to Steinbach Bible College after high school to prepare for that calling. She currently lives and works out of Thompson, Manitoba and is mainly involved with leading and discipling youth. She loves building relationships with people and seeing them growing into a deeper relationship with God.
My name is Daniel Merasty. I come from a Canadian-aboriginal background being primarily Cree - and a quarter Austrian. I was born in Thompson, raised in Northern Manitoba around people with the same background as me. My church family is the Thompson First Baptist Church. Who I am is a follower of Christ. Midway Christian Leadership has employed me for the last four and a half years teaching and leading northern Manitoban youth with similar backgrounds in how to follow Christ. We teach in Nelson House, Split Lake and Thompson all on a weekly basis – besides summer, where we have Bible Camp and invite most of the youth out to lead in cabin groups and to be taught in a more spiritually immersive environment. We believe in relationships - and that they are essential to discipleship. I feel blessed to have been a part of the lives of everyone involved in this ministry. So I would invite you to also be a part of it by considering to be a financial support to me as I minister to the youth of Northern Manitoba.
