Our Speaker for 2023 has been Philip and Linda Byler

Philip and Linda Byler have been lifelong followers of Jesus. From their marriage 52 years ago, they anticipated serving as medical missionaries in Africa. However, it was only after raising four children in Pennsylvania, USA, that God finally reconfirmed the call to cross-cultural mission. Philip and Linda served with AIM (Africa Inland Mission) from 2004 to 2019 in Uganda and South Sudan, initially as medical missionaries and later in mission leadership, church planting and discipleship. You can read about their time amongst the unreached Laarim people in their book, ‘Cows, Curses and Christ’. 

“As lifelong followers of Jesus, we are eager to share from scripture and personal experience some of the magnificence of Jesus that we have glimpsed in the last few decades.”
