Nick and Krystle Pirolo
Nick and Krystle Pirolo are bringing educational opportunities to Rwandan pastors and health care professionals.
Nick was raised a Christian and felt a call to be a missionary from an early age. Developing skills in teaching, he knew that this would open doors in any country. Krystal grew up in a non-Christian home. She became a Christian in high school, went on a six-month mission trip to South Africa and India, and felt called to return to Africa as a nurse.
They write, “Being a missionary is rewarding because we feel like we are doing what God has been preparing us to do for the last 25 years. We feel privileged to partner with others in this work. They are doing in America what we cannot, so that we can do in Rwanda what they cannot.

“We are excited to see that we will have a ripple effect. Because we are training leaders, and they train their people, we are having an even greater impact.
“Currently we are in the Partner Development phase of our ministry. We are raising a team of people who will partner with us in God’s work in Rwanda by praying for us and committing to financially support us. We have had some great meetings with key people in the church and are excited that people are partnering with us.
“We are so pleased that several pastors have mentioned that their churches need to hear about our ministry. We are excited that, in this phase, we get to help people see what God is doing in Rwanda, and how they can be involved. Once in Rwanda, we will spend time learning the local language: Kinyarwanda. Then, Nick will be working at New Creation Ministries, a pastoral training school. Krystal will explore opportunities in medical ministry as a nurse.
“While this is technically our “first term “with WorldVenture, we previously went to Rwanda for nine weeks with WorldVenture. Between the two of us, we have traveled as missionaries to Mexico, China, Ukraine, Turkey, South Africa, India, Ghana, and most recently Rwanda. Nick was a pastor for six years, a teacher for three and a missionary for one. Krystal has been a nurse for five years and a missionary for one.”
