Mark and Lorraine Armstrong have been married since 1988. They have 2 grown up sons, Andrew and Matthew. They live in Bangor Co. Down and are members of Bethany Baptist Church.
God’s call for them to help the church in Zimbabwe began when Mark was a pastor in Belfast. he became good friends with a Zimbabwean bible college student who served along side him as an intern. Mark and Lorraine visited Zimbabwe in July 2016 and God challenged them to support pastors who lacked basic theological resources. since then under the name of Operation Yaats they have been helping supply teaching materials and also have led some teaching seminars in Zimbabwe in April 2017.
Now as associate missionaries with Serving in Mission Mark and Lorraine will continue to be based in Northern Ireland. They will help provide biblically sound material for pastors and travel to and from Zimbabwe to help organise and deliver pastor teaching seminars.
