3 Years Experience At School

I grew up on a farm in Illinois with wonderful Christian parents.  It was there in an old country church where I surrended my life to the Lord Jesus Christ at age seven.  Serving Him the last 20 plus years as a missionary and teacher has taken me to many fascinating places and given me the chance to meet many wonderful people.  One of those is Claudia, who has been my wife going on 25 years now.  We have 3 awesome children - boy/girl twins (age 15) and a younger boy (age 14).  We enjoy playing sports as a family with basketball, football, and ping-pong among the favorites.  My favorite Bible verse is Psalm 26:1-2 "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear...."
