We are the Ott Family; it’s nice to meet you!
We are a pretty normal family following Jesus from the mid-West to Africa.
Andy is a nurse by vocation, but is a lover of people first. His compassion for “the lost and the least” compels him to serve in difficult places. He has a desire to provide compassionate care, ministering to the physical needs of a person in order to build a platform for sharing the love of Christ.
Jennifer has loved the children of Africa since spending time in Uganda as a young woman. Her gifts and passions propels her toward children and youth, delighting to tell them about the God who sees and loves them.
As a family, they desire to demonstrate the love of Jesus wherever they go and are excited to see what the Lord does in Zambia!
Andy is the ACTION Zambia C.R.O.S.S. Project Coordinator. His experience in church planting, camp work, and nursing as a vocation has prepared him for working alongside churches to strengthen and equip them in Gospel-based HIV/AIDS ministry. Jennifer is the C.R.O.S.S. Project Assistant Coordinator and Coordinator for a church-based youth and child discipleship program. With a degree in Biblical Studies and Children’s Ministires, she desires to help the local church reach children in their communities. Our four children are homeschooled, but love to tag along when they are able to ministry sites and to play with friends!
