How has God brought you to where you are today?

After meeting while training at MBI, we began serving full-time with a mobile support ministry to missions in 1983. We served in Brooklyn NY, NJ, MO, before spending 7 years helping Circle Urban Min. in Austin, during which time Calvary was our church home. While at our last stateside project in Valparaiso IN God led us to fill the need he’d equipped us for. We joined a team developing homes for abused, abandoned, and neglected kids (mainly girls) in Guatemala.

What is God doing in your immediate context?

We’re involved in God’s plan to restore lives into loving relationship, first with himself and then bring healing in relationship to others from the brokenness of the past. We’re part of a team introducing those who are hurting to the hope and care found in God’s family. This means engaging in a variety of practical help, mentoring, discipleship, and also leadership in our local church and school

How does your partnership with Calvary help you be more effective in your work?

Partnership with Calvary is integral to our ability to serve here. As Christians we are differently gifted, but all called to take part in God’s work in the world. Calvary’s part over the years has been that of a faithful supporter in prayer, finances, and the sending of several short term teams

How can people stay connected with you and your ministry, e.g. email newsletter, blog, social media?
