While living in Okinawa, Japan, missions became a passion for the Petway family. Unknown to them at the time, this is where the Lord began birthing Four Winds International into their hearts. Through experiences in counseling, discipleship, and mission trips, Pastors Tyvon and Jamallia saw the need and felt the burden for missionary and pastoral care. The Petway family walks out their lives by the leading of the Holy Spirit and truly believes, and has seen, God do the impossible repeatedly. Their core focuses are world missions, orphan care, worship, intercession, and building healthy marriages and families!
