My wife and I have been blessed for many years, while bringing hope through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I was a missionary with the Mennonite Church in Canada and Haiti. Also with the help of the Mennonite church, a group of us smuggled Holy Bibles into China.
My undergraduate degree is in Early Childhood Education (Eastern Mennonite University) and my graduate work is in Counseling Psychology (Eastern Mennonite Seminary and James Madison University). I have taught in both public and private schools.
For the last fifteen years, my wife and I have been teaching English to the Chinese in Key Largo, FL and every Tuesday during those years, Ginny has been telling Bible stories and leading singing at the local nursing home. As members of the Upper Keys Gideons International, we place Bibles in all the local schools, hotels and hospitals.
After earning the rank of Eagle Scout in 1973, I continued working with the Boy Scouts of America. I lead a team of fellow Eagle Scouts on a board of review for our local Troop 588.
