The Thomas Family – Missionaries
We are the Thomas Family. Dylan, Abbi, Blakely, CoraLee, Emalynn, and Waylon.
Dylan and Abbi married in 2010, shortly before Dylan deployed on his final combat deployment with the U.S. Army. Blakely arrived in 2011, born in Washington State, their final duty station. After exiting the Army, they moved back to Southwest Michigan, where Abbi grew up and added three more children to the tribe, CoraLee, Emalynn, and Waylon. Dylan continued to serve his community as a Sheriff’s Deputy, assisting veterans in agribusiness startup as well as in the local church.
Dylan’s first mission trip to Guatemala 2017 left a lasting impact on his heart and the desire to serve there only grew stronger as time went on. In 2020 our family moved to Tennessee to serve at the Tennessee Baptist Childrens Homes’ Ranch in Millington. Full time ministry has grown our family in ways we never could have expected and when Abbi joined Dylan on a trip to Guatemala in early 2023, it became clear God had Guatemala as our next chapter. We are looking forward to sharing our passion for discipleship, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, education, farming/gardening with the faithful servants of Clubhouse Ministries and the people of Guatemala.
