David and Teesha had only been married for one year when God began to call them away from their jobs and give them a new direction. At the time they were living in Kansas. David was on staff at Ottawa University, and Teesha was working in the local school system. God had been heavily weighing the country of India on their hearts when an opportunity arose for them to go there and do mission work for two months. They were excited about the possibility, but they also knew it would require them to leave the safety and comfort of the careers they already had and enjoyed. After much prayer, David and Teesha made the decision to leave their jobs, move their possessions into storage and go to India.
In packing for India, David and Teesha decided to bring along some of the simple object lessons they had sometimes used in teaching Bible studies and other small events. Once they arrived in the country, they were quickly amazed at how God could use these unique ministry tools to attract people to come and listen to the Gospel, especially so many people who otherwise may have never listened.

Upon returning to the United States, David and Teesha had no idea what might be next; they tried to be patient and wait for God’s direction. During this time they also began to receive invitations to share their illusion ministry at a variety of churches. More and more opportunities came, while David and Teesha continued to pray that God would show them what was next for them. Nine months later, they finally realized that God had been showing them His plan all along.
David and Teesha now share the message of Jesus Christ through the art of illusion on a full-time basis and continue to devote time and resources each year to missions in foreign countries.
