Low German Ministries

Wilfred & Margaret Unrau

The Unrau’s are engaged in Low German Speaking ministry with MMF to help oversee church planting and evangelism among the Old Mennonite Colonies in Central/South America. Currently, they teach 3 months at Steinrech Bible College in Mexico and spend the rest of their time Pastoring a new church plant in Little Belize and overseeing an evangelical school there. They have extensive Global Missions experience and are excited to be now focussing on Low German Speaking ministry!


Diedrich & Nettie Friesen

Previously missionaries in Belize, the Friesen family now live in Manitoba and minister to the low German-speaking people primarily through music. While in North America, they raise money for valuable resources and then travel to South America and provide to the Mennonite colonies while ministering to them through music and preaching. They help translate devotionals, children’s curriculum and other much-needed resources for the church.



Church at Little Belize

A brand new church plant has been established in an Old Mennonite Colony in Belize.

Ten families have come to know Christ in a real way and have broken free from the bondage of legalism and empty tradition. MMF is helping establish a ministry site and building program for this new movement which will include a church, school, library, and missionary residence.

The current focus is on training church leaders and establishing ministry outreach.
