We are Peter, Melanie, Sam, Madeleine, & Benjamin Morris.
Since 2015, we have lived in San José, Costa Rica serving with ReachGlobal as missionaries sent by Ambassador Bible Church, a multi ethnic, missions-minded, Evangelical Free church in the suburbs of Washington, DC.
Peter serves as the San José City Team Leader, shepherding our team and working alongside local partners as we mobilize missionaries, equip leaders, and bring hope. Melanie serves on the team and leads a regional team called ServeLAC that works to equip ReachGlobal missionaries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
Peter & Melanie met at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Peter, an Australian, and Melanie, an American army-brat raised in Europe, felt the call to cross-cultural ministry. We married in 2002, and after finishing our graduate degrees, moved to DC.
We lived in DC for 11 years where Peter worked for a non-profit that advocates for Indigenous peoples and served part-time on the pastoral staff at Ambassador as the Family Ministry Director. Melanie became a politico working for a variety of firms advocating on federal health policy and served as the Women’s Ministry Director at Ambassador.
