Kevin & Leslie
Kevin’s desire to use his talents for the Lord’s work began in 1984 when he took an accounting position with a homeless Rescue Mission in St Paul, MN. His work there included overseeing the general office, accounting and information technology. While employed at the Mission, he received his CPA license and a Master's in Software Systems. In 2005, the Lord transitioned the family to the Rescue Mission in Sioux Falls, SD, to continue in ministry using Kevin’s accounting and computer skills. In early 2015, the Lord led them through the process of becoming missionaries with SEND International in the Detroit, MI, area as the CFO in the US Office.

Kevin and Leslie have six children, three biological: Justin, Kaylene (married to Matt) and Larissa, and three adopted: Michael, Nicholas and Noelle. When the Lord led them to adopt children from other cultures, it heightened the Friesens' awareness of other people groups and the need for those groups to know Jesus as their Savior.

As part of the US Executive Team providing leadership and direction for the US Office, Kevin’s ministry is vital to SEND International’s purpose to mobilize missionaries, engage the unreached, and plant reproducing churches. Your support is also vital as they work with and support the missionaries on the field. They need a team of prayer partners and financial partners to stand with them.
