Josiah Frey grew up in northeast Pennsylvania. From the age of six he felt the Lord calling him to be a full-time missionary. In November of 1999, Josiah went on his first mission trip to Mexico. The house he stayed in had no running water or electricity. The only source of light was the small candles the host family had. It was a real eye opener to what life as a missionary would be like. Josiah wanted to go back on another trip to Mexico, but the Lord had other plans. Rod and Donna Frey (Josiah’s Parents) had both gone on Teen Missions teams in the early 80s and told Josiah about TMI in August of 2001. Josiah wanted to go on a team the next summer. In 2002, Josiah went on the Preteen team to Germany. It was a wonderful summer and of course he wanted to go back the following summer. However, it would be six years before Josiah went back to the Lord’s Boot Camp. During that time Josiah went to Romania and China on missions trips with different organizations. He also got very involved in his church, but he wanted to go back to Teen Missions. Finally, in 2008, Josiah went on the Teen Missions Siberia Team. It was on that team that God placed it on his heart to go to the Teen Missions Bible, Missionary & Work Training Centre (BMW) in Merritt Island, Florida. In 2009, he led the Ecuador Preteen Team and then came to BMW in September. During his time at BMW, Josiah served in the Personnel Office and led two teams: China 2010 and Cameroon 2011. He’s now serving his internship at the Canada Office as the Promotions Coordinator. Josiah has made a three year staff commitment and after his internship plans on going where ever the Lord and Teen Missions needs him.
- That I would seek the Lord daily and have a hunger for His Word.
- For safety as I travel across Canada to do promotions.
- That I would bring glory to Christ with everything I say and do.
