June Missionary Highlight | Justin & Tamara Reimer
Justin and Tamara Reimer have a deep affection for seeing the gospel of Christ transform the lives of people impacted by disability. Prior to having children, the Reimers were preparing to be missionaries in Russia. Their first child, Elisha, was born with Down Syndrome and they began to invest in the disability community that they became a part of, ultimately founding The Elisha Foundation. God has graciously brought the calling to cross-cultural missions together with their passion for disability outreach by advancing their family to Ukraine. There they’ve built a team to serve those with special needs, and recently they were able to open the Imago Dei Center for People with Disabilities where they host many church-based outreaches, as well as service for those affected by disability.
