We are the Antonino family: Nick, Sally, & Sophie. Our story begins in Vero Beach, Florida where Nick was an Assisting Pastor at Calvary Chapel Vero Beach, and Sally was a homeschool mom to Sophie. Our discovery of Rock Ministries came through an article that was written in the Calvary Chapel Magazine. Following this we watched a youtube video called, “The Third World Country of Kensington.” This video moved our hearts with compassion and lead us to take a mission team from our church to this area to help in anyway we could. We were forever changed by what we experienced and by the people we ministered to. We sensed that God was calling us to move to the hood to serve Him. We went back to Florida and prayed about our time spent here and what God’s will was for us. After some deep prayer and multiple trips back we felt the Lord’s peace and guidance to step out in faith and heed the call to make Kensington our home.
Pastor Buddy’s vision is to have a missionary family on every block of Kensington to minister and share the love of Jesus. The Lord provided a home for us as missionaries on East Monmouth Street where we are sharing one smile at a time, having one conversation at a time, and reaching one family at a time with the love of Christ. We count it a privilege to be here and look forward to all the wonderfull things that the Lord will do, and is doing in Kensington.
Grace & Peace
