Mike & Crystal Silva, Mike Silva International

My bride, Crystal, and I have been married for over 45 years and we have been blessed with
four adult daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren— all of whom live near us in Central Oregon.

As missionary evangelists, our calling is not to a certain place, but to linguistic groups. We
practice and proclaim the life-changing message of the Lord Jesus Christ in English, Portuguese, and Spanish speaking nations of the world. Why these three languages? Besides the fact that I am an English speaker, and my ethnicity is Portuguese and Spanish; we have
found that when we intentionally go after these people groups… we are reaching three of the
top six most spoken languages of the world!

Regardless of where we are serving, or what language we are serving in, we are called to:

  • Proclaim the Gospel/Rescue People- “Be merciful to those who doubt. Snatch others from the fire and save them…” (Jude 22-23)
  • Invest in the local Church- “It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets,
    some to be evangelists, some to be pastors, and teachers…to prepare God’s people for works
    of service, so that the body of Christ may be built-up.” (Eph. 4:11-12)
  • Cultivate Disciples- “They preached the Good News in that city and won a large number of
    disciples…strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith.” (Acts

Our global, passionate pursuit to reach the ‘least and lost,’ is made possible because of faithful
partners like YOU, our Morning Star Church Family. You have been strengthening our ministry
arm for over two decades! For that, we are forever grateful. THANK YOU!

Yours, to make HIM known,
Mike & Crystal Silva
