Mike & Ilona Hadinger

Mike and Ilona Hadinger were appointed missionaries to Latin America in 1995 after serving as pastors in Ohio. Their ministry to people groups of Mexico have taken them from Chihuahua in the north to Oaxaca in the south, where they currently reside.

Mike is a gifted teacher with a pastor’s heart. His cultural sensitivity and people skills have helped him form lasting relationships with many form diverse backgrounds. On their last assignment, he served as regional presbyter with the Assemblies of God of Mexico and partnered in establishing three Bible Training Modules in southern Oaxaca. Besides English, he is fluent in Spanish and has an elementary proficiency in German.

Ilona is an ambitious writer and an award-winning photographer. Her articles have appeared in Christianity Today’s Gifted for Leadership e-zine, Women of the Harvest, and Cleveland.com, among other online sources. Through her creative style, she presents the needs of indigenous women as well as maintaining ministry blogs, communications, and promotions. She too is fluent in Spanish and maintains a limited working proficiency in Hungarian, her first language.

Mike and Ilona have four children: three sons who have graduated from Assembly of God universities and live in the United States, and a teenage daughter who lives with them and calls Mexico her true home.

Their experience working in oral societies, first with the Old Colony Germans in northern Mexico and later with various indigenous groups in southern Mexico, will be an asset as they partner with OLI to evangelise the lost, disciple new converts, and train leaders in Latin America.
