Danielle and I, grew up in the Spokane Valley, WA. God called both of us into missions in East Africa before we got married in 2003. In preparation for medial missions Danielle completed her nursing degree. During that time I worked in construction learning various practical skills. Our son Josiah was born in 2006 and our daughter Anna in 2008.
In 2011 we started making preparation for our move overseas. In July of 2012 we moved to Yei, South Sudan to work with YWAM (Youth With A Mission). Danielle works in and oversees a clinic that provides services for children that attend a YWAM run primary school. The clinic also provides services for families from the surrounding community. She is also involved in children’s ministry that reaches out to our local community and to the local Internally displaced peoples camp (IDP). I am a part of the base leadership team and I work in accounts and finance in the YWAM office.
Through these activities God is able to use us to not only speak His truth but to also show people how to live it. In our town Yei, I teach English to Muslim refugees from Darfur. Through the class I have been able to make and build many relationships which is the ground work for evangelism.
