Joshua & Emma Lyons


Hi! We are the Lyons, missionaries with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) preparing to serve in Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia! YWAM exists to help people know God and make God known, and that is exactly what we hope to do in Kyrgyzstan.

We met during a missions training school in 2022 and knew that God had something special for us! After serving separately in the Middle East and Africa we began our relationship and God started stirring our hearts for Central Asia. In preparation for serving long term overseas we completed a School of Missions in Lebanon together and after being married in May of 2024 we will be transitioning into full time ministry.

Our hearts have always burned together for houses of prayer and we know that this will always be a central piece of our ministry together. God’s desire for a dwelling place among men has been spoken of throughout the entire Bible from the garden, the tabernacle, and the temple in the Old Testament to the church (1 Peter 2:5), Jesus Himself, and ultimately in the New Jerusalem when God makes everything new (Revelation 21:3). Our desire in ministry is to partner with God’s desire and establish places and communities where God is honored, worshiped, and where prayer is the focus and God takes center stage.

This is exactly what we will be doing in Kyrgyzstan as we join a team seeking to plant houses of prayer in every capitol city across Central Asia! We are so excited to be joining in all the team is doing in Bishkek, but until the Lord opens the door for us to move there long term, we are serving Him the same ways locally. We are currently partnering with a small house of prayer in Emma’s home town in Ohio and after getting married we will be serving in similar ways at a missions base in Colorado. This mission base also shares a heart to send teams to Kyrgyzstan and is where we will be stationed as we prepare a team to launch overseas long term!

But we can't do this alone. We need a team of family and friends like you to co-labor with us in this work. Would you prayerfully consider joining us in this ministry for the Kingdom of God by supporting us in prayer or finances?
