About Tim and Christine
Tim Huber, born in 1954, was raised by missionary parents, Melvin and Katherine Huber, in southern Brazil. He is the middle of five children. He graduated with a major in Missions and Pastoral Care from Columbia International University in Columbia, South Carolina, and received a master’s degree in TESL at WCIU in Pasadena, California. Together with his parents and family, he worked as a missionary in the Amazon for five and a half years. In the Amazon, he also worked with Japanese immigrants. For many years he prayed for Japan, and in 1987, he was so thankful for the privilege of being sent by Project Amazon Mission to Japan as a missionary. He speaks English, Portuguese and Japanese, and is thankful he can counsel and pray for people of different nationalities who live in Japan.
In 1997, Tim married Christine, also missionary with Project Amazon. She was also the widow of his older brother Luke, founder of Project Amazon, who died suddenly in an airplane crash in the Amazon in 1994, leaving four children 10-19 years of age. They all love and serve the Lord in the Amazon and in the USA, for which they thank the Lord! They also enjoy their six grandchildren, even though they are far away.
Christine, who has an identical twin sister, Emilee, was raised by missionary parents, Curtis and Estelle Bunney, on the Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona, the fifth of eight children. She graduated from Biola University in Los Angeles, majoring in Christian Education. Christine is so amazed by God’s faithfulness through difficult times. He is always good, all the time, no matter what the circumstances look like!
Tim and Christine love watching God give hope and joy to lonely people! They enjoy working with Japanese Christians, who get so excited and dedicated to reaching others with God’s love too–in Japan and around the world!
