Gary & Ashley Helms are currently raising support to join the Missionary Apprenticeship Program (MAP) staff of Serge. Why would a predictable, stability-loving couple choose to leave the serene mountains of Western NC for a bustling city of 7 million where over 300 languages are spoken? The answer is that God has given Gary and Ashley Helms a vision to invest long term in building His Kingdom in London. Before they married in the autumn of 2003, they had separately served for various lengths in Amsterdam, Belize, Kosovo, and London. Ashley served for two years in Senegal.They deployed in 2015 to London as full-time staff, helping to lead an apprenticeship and internship program in London. Having had careers in management, administration, and sales, Gary and Ashley draw from these rich life experiences while using their gifts to help train and mentor apprentices and interns. They say that experiencing the richness of God's grace daily is what gives them the confidence and passion to take these risks.
