In 2011 he developed LAM’s North American Partnerships department to assist Churches & organizations on the sending end of International Missions.
In January of 2015, the Abeggs began a long anticipated assignment as missionaries working in the area of human trafficking with UWM partner ministry the Life of Freedom Center in Miami Florida.
Three years later, after gaining invaluable experience, they accepted positions as UWM Regional Leaders serving missionaries and partner ministries throughout Central America and the Caribbean as well as providing Anti Trafficking training, resources and networking.
