Home Missionary Assignment
Home Missionary Assignment (HMA) is the term our mission organization uses for when a missionary spends time in their home country while remaining on active missionary status. As Americans living in Germany, we are legally obligated every 5 years to leave Germany for a year and a day. This is called totalization. Our totalizaiton year will be our HMA year. This will start in July 2020 for our family. We plan on living in Nebraska with my, Alyson's, parents. During this time we will be working on partner development to meet our financial needs to return to Germany in July 2021 for another 5 years of service. As well as doing work as needed for Teach Beyond state side. During this year we will remain on support.
We are looking forward to meeting up with as many of you as possible during our year in the states.
