The Chouteau Family

Jimmy and his wife Cynthia traveled for the first 5 years of marriage as missionaries with an organization called YWAM (Youth With A Mission). When asked, both Jimmy and Cynthia believe missions becomes part of you forever. They and their three (now four!) children began serving widows around them for several years before officially launching Widow Wednesday in 2012.  Though Widow Wednesday has grown far beyond their own family project, the Chouteaus continue to be active in blessing widows around them.  Jimmy currently also serves as President of Widow Wednesday.
