The Carlyle family began deputation to go to the field of Brazil in January of 2007. Through Michael’s education at Central Baptist Theological Seminary, God began burdening them more and more for pioneering missions. In the fall of 2008, a close friend (Chris Seawright who we also support) invited them to work with him in Cambodia, something they had not been considering. After discussing the possibility with their sending church, supporting churches and mission board, some of the family went on a short term trip. Upon returning home they discussed the results of the trip with their sending church, supporting churches and mission board. After raising their support the Carlyle family arrived in Cambodia on September 1, 2009.
