John and Esther (Keller) Shrader

John Shrader (a/k/a The World's Worst Missionary) moved his wife, Esther, and their evergrowing brood to Zambia to convert Christians to the "right" brand of Christianity.

Before moving to Zambia, the Shraders lived in a pop-up camper while on deputation.  They relied on the kindness of various churches, as well.  John grifted money for a plane (sight unseen already located in Zambia) and flying lessons.

Since moving to Zambia he has grifted an amazing amount of money and items for his "ministry."  He has converted approximately 2 people in the 5 or so years he's been there.

The Shrader's quality of life is far above what they had in the US.  They have all the necessities: an actual house, a fridge with an icemaker, and a supply of sunflower seeds and beef jerky.

Join us as we chronicle John's misadventures in deepest darkest sub-Saharan Africa.
