Mike and Robin grew up in Texas and met at Austin College. Both accepted Christ through the ministry of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Shortly after Mike’s graduation, they married and eventually moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where they lived for 15 years. Since 2001, they served in Ecuador in both Guayaquil and Quito. Serving as part of a church-planting team they saw the need for ministering in both word and deed. They pursued training at the Chalmers Institute for Economic Development and learned to promote small savings and credit groups among the poor in Guayaquil and Quito. In 2010 Robin completed a master’s degree in international community economic development.
Mike and Robin have been invited to work with the Presbytery of Bulawayo in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. They will work alongside the national church in discipleship, mercy initiatives, and church planting. Mike has recently begun a master’s degree in theology through RTS virtual campus in order to continue preparing for this work. Please pray for the McMahan’s as they proclaim Christ in both word and deed in Zimbabwe.
