Join us on a vision
Kia Ora and Welcome!
Our Paper Airplane is a place where we can communicate with you about our lives and the work God has called us to overseas. We are so grateful to have you in our lives and for journeying along with us.
– Keegan and Carla West
So what’s going on huh?
Who are we again…?
We are a part of YWAM
Although we work in slightly different fields of missions, both of us are apart of an organization called Youth with a Mission. YWAM is an inter-denominational, non-profit Christian, missionary organization. Founded by Loren Cunningham and his wife Darlene Cunningham in 1960, YWAM’s stated purpose is to “know God and to make Him known”.
We Come From All Over
Where do we come from? All over! Carla was born and raised in the United States, Keegan was born in South Africa, and grew up in New Zealand. We met and got married here in Thailand!
We run a training school and encourage the downhearted
Keegan is the current school leader for the School of Frontier Media at Create International Thailand. The school is is a six-month, second-level YWAM school, devoted to training individuals in using media forms to communicate the Gospel in ways that are both innovative and culturally relevant.
Carla is currently completing her masters in counseling, and getting involved in helping local Thai’s, as well as missionaries, here in Chiang Mai
We are both artists
We are missionaries and artists. God has called us to seek the lost, creating for His glory, while extending His Kingdom. But, although God has called us to serve him, he also calls you! As Andrew Fuller said “I Will Go Down If You Will Hold the Rope!” Would you think about “holding the rope” for us and supporting us while we serve overseas?
