Global Partners

At Evergreen Heights, we partner with MB Mission in supporting missionaries who are sharing the gospel of hope in Jesus Christ with people all over the world.


We support and engage in ongoing relationships with the following Global Workers:

Joanna Pharazyn: Portugal

The realization of God’s calling on my life to join him in cross-cultural ministry overseas has been an incredible journey. It started in 2008 when I went to Thailand and continued in 2012-13 when I joined workers in Portugal for 7.5 months and saw lives changed through the faithful work of God’s people. My heart is to join Jesus in mission for healing and discipleship (Isaiah 61). I am excited to see how God will use my skills and my studies in Kinesiology, Personal Training, and Theology.


Prayer Requests


  • Pray that God will raise up a team of prayer and financial partners
  • Pray that I will be drawn into a deeper intimacy with God.
  • Pray for a move of God’s Spirit in Portugal, bringing revival.
  • Pray that our team will respond to the promptings of the Spirit and boldly proclaim the mystery of the Gospel
  • Pray for the Bride of Christ, that we will be ready for Christ’s return.
