     While serving in the US Navy I was asking questions about the purpose of life and began looking for answers by evaluating various religions and their beliefs. While sifting through these different religions I also heard the gospel (the right answer) a number of times and came to
realize that I was a sinner in need of a Savior. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior on November 1, 1980. Following my conversion, I was discipled in a Navigator’s Bible study. There I learned about our great Savior and how to effectively share the salvation message.


The Bible study also saturated my mind with scripture helping me to understand that nothing would be more fulfilling than to serve the Lord in some capacity. Since then I realized that God’s Word commands each of His children to be a living testimony to a lost and dying world.
For me it was a matter of obedience and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit that led me into ministry as a missionary.


After completing my military enlistment, I attended Word of Life Bible Institute and finished my education at Piedmont Baptist (Bible) College. After graduation I worked with Missions to Military in both Virginia Beach, VA , and Jacksonville, NC for a total of three years as a single missionary.


As I found out, God did not want me working alone. In 1996 I was introduced to Janet, the daughter of one of Missions to Military’s veteran missionaries, Willard and Lois Zimmer. We were married in Janet’s home church later that year.  We served faithfully as Sunday school
teachers and in the visitation ministry. God has blessed us with three children: Daniel, Christy, and Anastasia.


In 1999 missionary Don Sturtz, from Couriers for Christ, gave a challenge to be a part of a Bible distribution campaign in the country of Belarus. Our home church organized a mission trip, praying that God would call someone from our group into full time missions. God answered that prayer. It was Janet and I who were going to minister to the Belarusian people.


Returning to Belarus we served in the capital city of Minsk for 15 years. Throughout that time we used English as a Second Language to evangelize and bring people to Christ. From this outreach we invited people to our home where we taught numerous books of the Bible in hope of developing strong believers. In February 2010, we started an in-home church. Our in-home church eventually merged with another young national church allowing us to return to the USA in 2018.


During our last few years in Belarus, we felt the Lord redirecting our service for Him. In 2017 God opened the door for us to candidate with Missions To Military (MTM) bringing with us extensive cross cultural experience in ministry. The following January we were officially
accepted by the Board of MTM and later that year started teaching the Bible to military men and women in the Virginia Beach area.

Prayer Letter

It was while in Basic Training of the U.S. Air Force during the Korean conflict when I, as a new Christian, was encouraged by a fellow airman to systematically study the Scriptures and commit them to memory. Although this discipleship process was brief, it was life-changing; I became aware of the great opportunity of evangelization and discipleship which was possible among the masses of Military personnel. I saw firsthand how men were responding to the Gospel and their lives were changed; this challenged my heart to the opportunity of investing my life where the Lord was so significantly working. My wife, Yvonne, and I came to Norfolk, Virginia in 1958 to found the ministry to the military and to develop the strategy of utilizing a Military Christian Center as a base for evangelism and discipleship. The ministry of Missions To Military soon began to extend to other cities and military bases in the United States. Then, in 1979 the Lord led me to found Colonial Baptist Church in Virginia Beach where I served as Senior pastor until 1988. 

Thank you, faithful pastors, churches, and friends for sharing with us in this missionary endeavor. There is room for one more in this harvest field - come and join a winning team! — Dr. Keith Davey


I love being on the MTM Team and working with these godly and dedicated women and men. I have the "fun job" of preparing and printing our missionaries' letters, typing brochures and tracts, as well as anything else that comes across my desk to type. I appreciate the privilege of being involved in a ministry that loves the Military and is always looking for new ways to reach our men and women who are protecting our freedom.

I thank YOU for supporting us so that we can give ourselves to doing the work of the ministry in a manner that will glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. "Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits..." Psalm 68:19 — Yvonne Davey

The Lord saved me when I was in the third grade. I'm not saying how long ago that was, but it was long enough ago that I have now retired from working with the U.S. Government. I was an Information Research Analyst with the FBI and, fortunately for me, the U.S. Government workers can retire at a relatively early age.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6.

Those verses have been "rock solid" for me through the years, and I know I'm not finished with them yet. I'm in awe of God's faithfulness! I feel blessed to be a part of the MTM Team. I began working here at MTM-HQ in August of 2004.  I work on Accounts Receiving, mailing lists and various other jobs. I am having a really good time serving the Lord in my little part of the world.

I was saved at the age of 15. Sometime after high school graduation I joined the U.S. Navy, where I met a fine Christian man whom later became my husband. We have two sons. I retired as a dental technician after twenty years in the Navy. I began working as a Bookkeeper with MTM in the summer of 2001, and enjoy being His tool in a place where I can use my skills for His glory. "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."

Assistant for French Military Christian Center

Prayer Letter

Privileged to grow up in a missionary family in the country of Algeria, the first 8 years of my life were lived during the French / Algerian war. Because of this war, I did not come back to the States until I was 8. That is when I started to learn the English language, French being my first language. The Lord saved me at the age of 13 during a Christian camp in Algeria. In March 1970, my parents and all the other missionaries under their mission were expelled from Algeria. My parents then came to Toulon, France when I was just 16. As we left Algeria, God was working in my heart in a special way showing me through my parents' example that He truly is faithful. His promises were not just written words, but I could really trust them and appropriate them in my own life.

Later, that same year, the Lord brought Chuck Greenstreet to France with the goal of starting a ministry among the French military. After language school he came to Toulon and with the help of my parents and my French brother-in-law, he opened the first foreign Military Center under Missions To Military. The Lord led us to get married on June 30th, 1973. During the 13 years we ministered to the military, we also started a Bible Institute (I was one of the first two graduates) and established a local church. Then on May 25th, 1986, about 17 hours after our return to the US for deputation, we were involved in a head-on car accident in which the lady who caused the accident, Chuck's father and he himself were killed. My mother-in-law and I were critically injured, but once again, I saw God's faithfulness, grace and comfort at work. Determining in my heart that, unless the Lord showed me otherwise, I would go back and serve Him in Toulon, I began my recovery. Upon returning to Toulon; however, the Lord soon directed me to the Paris area where I served Him under MTM's guidance for almost 10 years in a Bible Institute.

At the end of 1996, the Lord brought me back to my former ministry in Toulon. Since then, besides taking care of my aged mother, it has been my joy and privilege to labor once again with my MTM co-workers: John & Joy Gribbin and Bob & Cyndi Scott. Pray for us and with us as we seek to win the lost in this spiritually dark country. Among many others, this verse is always an encouragement to me: "This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness." Lamentations 3:21-23.

Director of the Jacksonville Military Christian Center

Tom became a Christian in September 1986 while in the Marines and stationed in Guam. He met Kyung earlier that summer as she shared the gospel and encouraged him to read the Scriptures. While reading the Scriptures he became convicted of his sin and realized why Christ came to die. He began repenting of his sins and following Christ.

Tom regularly shared his faith with other Marines. After receiving orders to 3/5 (infantry unit), he began to lead Bible studies with Marines and continued to witness.

After serving 4 years in the Marine Corps, he moved to Hawaii where Kyung was attending the University of Hawaii. God providentially moved him to serve at a local church as a Youth Pastor in 1989. Kyung graduated from the University of Hawaii in 1990 and we were married in July. We have served as staff or in lay ministry ever since.

Tom received his MDiv from The Master’s Seminary (2003) and his Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Counseling from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (2013). He is a certified counselor with The Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC). Kyung is trained and certified in biblical counseling with the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation (CCEF).

In 2015, after serving as senior pastor for 12 years, God directed us to minister to the military at Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station with Missions to Military. The Lord has brought many opportunities to evangelize, disciple, and counsel Marines/Sailors and their families. We meet weekly for large group Bible Study on Friday evenings, and for small group discipleships through the week. We also meet for biblical counseling with individuals and couples.

We have two grown sons. Stephen is married to Rachel (May 2017) and is an attorney-at-law. Grand-daughter, Evelyn Grace is a recent addition and blessing. Joshua is a Captain serving in the United States Marine Corps.
