Enoch and Janel Richardson are originally from the Pacific Northwest.  They started their journeys together in marriage in 1996 and lived in Washington, Alaska, and Oregon until 2004 when God led their family to move to Uzbekistan with their 4 kids (Josiah, Lydia, Silas & Ezra) to the city of Samarkand.  The Richardsons have lived with Tajiks in Uzbekistan for almost 2 years.  They were forced to leave in 2006 and moved to Tajikistan to continue to be ambassadors for Jesus to the Tajik people.  After living in the capital city of Dushanbe for a year, God directed the Richardsons to move to the town of Panjakent to continue with church planting. Teaming with others, including Evan and Jenn Brooks, they have endeavored to be spreaders of God's glory to the lost and found alike.
