Get to Know Healing Faith
Jason and Kari Segner the founders of Healing Faith, were married in the fall 2001. Their first daughter, Faith, was born in 2003. She went to be with our Heavenly Father shortly after her birth. Since that time God has richly blessed and expanded the Segner family. When they moved to Uganda their family consisted of Karson (2004), Everett (2006), Hadlee (2008) and Pierce (2010). In the spring of 2013 the Segner family began a journey of adoption of another son, Joseph (2010) and another daughter, Eva Faith (2012). Unfortunately, after 8 months in to the process and loving Eva Faith as their daughter and sister, the adoption process had to end for her. It is a long story, but please keep praying for her as she remains in the orphanage to this day. She will always be a daughter and a sister in the Segner’s hearts and they are trusting in His plan for her life.
In January 2011 Jason and Kari went to Uganda, Africa on a short term mission trip. They were immediately captivated by the people and the culture. The trip was life changing…
Early in Kari’s life God placed a calling on Kari’s heart to serve in Africa, “that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6. God continued that work in Kari’s heart and has since called the Segner Family to serve His people in Uganda, Africa. In January 2012 the Segners moved the entire family to Uganda to serve as full time missionaries and start a ministry called Healing Faith.
THE MCMORRIS FAMILY
When Cara and Dave married 12 years ago, they had no idea what an incredible journey God had in store for their lives. Each had grown up in church, but in their marriage, God began to draw each closer to Him in very incredible ways. God began calling them to truly live a life with Him at the center. Glorifying Him became the focus of all they did. Living in Normal, Illinois, with Dave’s daughter Mara, who was 9 years old at the time, they began to feel the life of obedience to God’s call would be anything but normal. Dave, a public school 6th grade teacher, has been able to share his love of Jesus with students and families with the blessing of his administrators. Cara owned a home day care and pre-school for the last 10 years where she was blessed to be able to plant seed of God’s love in the hearts of over 80 children!
As their family grew, first by 3 bio kids and then through the adoption of 3 kids from foster care, God’s call only became stronger. They prayed for God to lead them, as a family into His service. After years of serving locally, gentle nudges began leading them to explore ministry in Africa.
In the summer of 2013, Chloe, Cara and Dave traveled on a 2 week trip to Africa. During this trip their hearts were shattered, and they placed the broken pieces at the feet of Jesus, knowing that only He could restore. Back at home, they prayed as a family to be open to whatever God was up to.
In January of 2014, they were asked about the possibility of coming to Uganda while the Segners had some time on furlough. After much prayer, all agreed that this is what God was up to.
Dave, Cara and the 6 youngest McMorries have committed the year (June 2014- June 2015) to life and ministry with Healing Faith. May God continue to lead them each step of the way, and may the prayers of the Body of Christ bind them to Him.
