The Chouteau Family
Jimmy and Cynthia, who were both missionaries with an organization called YWAM, traveled for the first five years of their marriage. When asked, both Jimmy and Cynthia believe that missions become part of you forever. They and their four children have been serving widows for several years before officially launching Widow Wednesday in 2012. Though Widow Wednesday has grown beyond their own family project, as a family the Chouteaus continue to stay personally active in blessing widows around them. Jimmy currently also serves as President of Widow Wednesday.
