Patrick & Elizabeth Thompson

Patrick and Elizabeth met through the Navs at San Diego State, where Elizabeth met Jesus and where both were discipled. Since then, they have developed a passion to know Christ and make him known. In conjunction with this, they desire to extend God's grace and mercy to the world around them, including, and especially to the oppressed and marginalized. They have been able to serve with the Navigators since 2005, discipling college students and urban youth, and they have been married since 2007. They are the happy parents of Eliana (6), Miriam (4), and J.J. (1).
