Who We Are
We were married in 2009 and have been pursuing ministry together ever since. Our son Leo was born in 2012. While waiting for Leo to recover from heart surgery we spent time in ministry in Canada. We moved to Asia-Pacific in 2015 where we began to study the national culture and language. Our daughter Talia was born in early 2017 in Canada, and when she turned two months old we moved to Papua. We finished national culture and language study in the spring of 2018, and are now involved in teaching and discipling national pastors and evangelists at a local training centre. The graduates return to their villages to teach God's Word and make disciples in their heart languages. Everything we do is to help the unreached people groups come to understand the Gospel of grace and be able to read and understand the Bible in their heart language.
Leo (age 5) moved to Java when he was 2 years old, and then to Papua when he was 4 years old. He loves riding on motorcycles, snorkeling, swimming in creeks, and eating sate and krupuk.
Talia (age 1) moved to Papua when she was 2 months old. She loves watching all the village dogs and chickens running around, the attention she gets in the market, eating fresh fruit, and clapping along to local nursery songs.
