About Us

Jiana, Gwen, Tony and Jensina Martin

We are Christian missionaries in Luleå, Sweden where we are working with a Swedish denomination trying to start new churches throughout Sweden. We’ve started a house church during our first term and are currently back in the States to raise additional funds. When we return, Tony will be a church planting coach and will come along side others throughout Sweden to plant God-delighting, world-surprising churches. We will also train local church leaders and minister to others in their faith journey.

Our passion is to see the people of Sweden turn back to God and we envision planting healthy churches that will plant other healthy churches.

We need others to join our team and support us through prayer and financial donations.  To be part of our prayer team, email us at If you would like to support us financially, please go to, click “Give” and enter your information.

  1. Gwen and Tony,

    So good to hear from you. Your daughters are lovely and so pretty like their mother. You both look great and so very content in your call of God and with your delightful daughters.

    We pray God’s richest blessings on you.

  2. Hi Pamela,
    Sorry it took so long to reply to your post. Unfortunately, the photo is not mine and I forget where I got it from. I wish you luck on your program. May I ask how you found our site?

    Hi, Gwen and Tony, and family!
    This is Claudia Smith Fuse, Salem NJ-
    I had met Gwen at Bancroft in the early 80s-
    And have been receiving your prayer letter, and praying for you. You were on my heart this morning, and I checked your blog. So thankful for all your dedication to building the church in Sweden and serving the Lord. I remember Gwen’s dear father visiting my grandpa and encouraging him!
    Praying God‘s grace to be multiplied to you and your family, and for his healing virtue in your bodies! Love in Christ, Claudia

    • Hi Claudia!

      This is Tony and I’m finally replying to you after 15 months! After Gwen’s death, I had not looked at this blog until now. When I lost Gwen, so many things changed for our family and ministry. It took me more than 6 months to get over the constant grief, and even now (over 18 months later), it’s still difficult.
      Anyway, I have permanently moved back to the US in PA and I help to lead a house church network here – basically the same ministry I had in northern Sweden. I am getting ready to send out my first newsletter and to probably restart a blog/website, although I’m not sure if I’ll keep this name or use a fresh one. If you’d like to remain on our mailing list, please send me your mailing address as well as your email address so I can include you on the list.
      Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon!


    • Hi again Claudia,
      When you send your contact info, please send it to so I know that I’ll see it. Thanks again.
