WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) - A Wichita family says they're taking a big step of faith next month. They will soon be living in a different country to continue their missionary work. But to do it, it will require some major changes.

KSN met with the family to share the beginnings of their new adventure.

The Tristan family's journey doesn't start in Argentina but starts here in Wichita, while they get rid of almost everything they own. They say they're happy to sell everything and start helping others in a new place.

Its been a busy few days at the Tristan family home.

From visitors stopping in to purchase beds, vacuums, Christmas decorations, even cars that belong to Sergio and Patricia Tristan and their two sons.

"T ables and our washer and drier, TVs bookshelves," said Patricia Tristan, Wichita.

"We didn't know that we had to get rid of everything," said Sergio Tristan, Wichita.

They are only allowed to take four 5 by 5 pallets of belongings with them. But they say letting go isn't as difficult, when you have an exciting opportunity to look forward to.

The two pastors at First United Methodist Church say they are moving the family to Argentina, to train and develop new church leadership there.

"I just can't imagine doing anything else but going there and helping out to grow the churches over there," said Patricia.

The family will be there for at least three years and say they will live a more simple lifestyle. The couple says they have been looking to their faith and friends for support during the transition.

"We were nervous at first at the beginning because you know a big change like this, it takes faith," said Sergio.

Sergio and Patricia say they will miss their friends and family in Kansas, but feel ready to start their opportunity to help others with their faith.

The couple tells KSN they are excited for their sons to learn about a new culture and language. And they also are looking for a new home for their family dog, and if you are interested in giving him a home, you can contact them at 316-573-8723 or on Facebook @PatriciaTristan.
