Evangelists Bryan (far right) and Loice (2nd from left) Ohiirwe are our East Africa Directors. Bryan was 10 years old when he felt the call to be an Evangelist and has since been blessed with a wonderful wife, Loice (2nd from left), have 4 beautiful children.
Bryan's original call to evangelism came many years ago when he was a little boy and the Freedom Team was conducting Evangelistic outreaches in Africa. He had a conversation with Tom while at the outreach ground that ended up being a great source of inspiration which stirred his heart to do the work of an evangelist.
Evangelist Joshua Tukesiga (far left) is a single man who felt a call to evangelize in the Universities and schools of education. Upon accompanying Bryan & Loice's Team to a Prisoners of Pain.....God's Grace prison event he expressed a great interest to be involved with the TFEA Prison Ministry and since then has been very active in the TFEA East Africa prison ministry.
Evangelist Hector Soto has been on our Mexico Team for over 18 years. He has been faithful and loyal to our Prisoners of Pain…. God’s Grace documentary ministry. Hector had been arrested 103 times before he came to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ which dramatically changed his life
Hector ministers in the rehabilitation centers by himself and always seems to find volunteers from the centers who assist him with carrying and setting up the equipment, handing out and collecting decision cards from the responding inmates, and distributing the follow up Gospel materials & Bibles.
Evangelist Joy Richard has grown up on the Freedom Team and over the last decade has opened most of their Power Explosion Events with her dynamic singing and sparkling personality.
Joy is the youngest daughter of Tom and Carla Flaskerud. Joy lives in Bend, OR with her husband, David Richard, and their son.
Joy was licensed in 2011 as an Evangelist with the Tom Flaskerud Evangelistic Association. Since then, she has increased in her singing, her preaching, and God’s anointing on her Evangelistic Prison Concert Events. Over the last few years thousands of prison inmates have enjoyed the Joy Concerts and hundreds of men and women have responded and found a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Pastors Tom and Carla Flaskerud have been leading people to Jesus Christ for the last 40 years.
They have had the opportunity to travel throughout the U.S., Mexico, El Salvador, Ecuador, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and India to share the message of hope and salvation found only in Jesus Christ. Tom's prayer for years is that God would allow him and Carla to see 1 million souls come into the Kingdom of God before God takes them off this earth.
God has been using them and their teams as they are being blessed and beginning to see the possibility of God using their ministry to bring 1 million lost souls into His Kingdom.
