Rex II and Melissa McDowell

Born

Rex: January 20, 1983 in Siler City, North Carolina to Rex and Hannah McDowell

Melissa: August 6, 1978 in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania to Tom and Drema Susan

Saved

Rex: For most of my adolescence I was up and down spiritually. It wasn’t until my senior year in high school that I really determined to live my life for God. I was saved not long before I graduated from high school, and became established spiritually during my freshman year of college. Since then God has given me a clear witness to sanctification as well.

Calling

Rex: I remember God beginning to deal with my heart about being a missionary when I was twelve years old. Since then I have always felt a call to missions. Although I have never had a “Macedonian” call, God has been faithful to guide my path each step of the way. I know that our ministry in Costa Rica is God’s will for our lives.

Melissa: While I cannot say that I have a specific mission’s call, I have always been open to God’s leading in my life. I am happy to work with my husband in Costa Rica.

College

Rex: I graduated from Penn View Bible Institute, Penns Creek, PA, with a double major in Hispanic Missions and Ministerial.

Melissa: I graduated from Penn View Bible Institute with a degree in Missions.

Marriage

God led our lives together at our home church, the Millmont God’s Missionary Church. We were married on June 4, 2005.

Ministry

Rex: My family went to the mission field for the first time when I was five years old, so I spent most of my childhood and early teen years involved with their ministry. While attending Penn View Bible Institute, I traveled for two years in a quartet. After I graduated from college I served as youth pastor and was in charge of our bus outreach program at my home church for two years. We joined Evangelistic Faith Missions in February of 2008, and will be serving with them in Costa Rica for as long as the Lord leads.

Melissa: I love children, and had the opportunity to teach our church’s nursery Sunday school class for close to nine years. Also I was able to help lead our church’s youth group and work on the bus route for two years.

Children

Devin Alex McDowell was born on December 30, 2006 in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.
