I grew up in Washington State and graduated from Western Washington University in 2011 with a degree in Environmental Science. In 2012, I served for a year in Zambia with a mission organization called Seeds of Hope International Partnerships whose goal is to introduce Christ to poor communities while implementing clean water technologies and agricultural development. While I was there I saw the great need for a sustainable food supply in Africa, and although natural resources were abundant, they were not being stewarded well and people were going hungry.
When I returning to the U.S., I continued working in agriculture with the hope of returning to Africa. I was able to work at a small-scale farm, growing various vegetables and herbs and loved it! In September 2013, I got married to my beautiful wife Katie who has the same passion for Africa and the same degree in environmental science.
We are currently going to language school to in Portugal in preparation for serving in Mozambique (the official language there is Portuguese). After we're finished with our studies, we'll move to Mozambique in July 2017 to serve the poor by teaching agriculture and reforestation methods that incorporate the gospel.
We are excited to use our skills and passions to serve and empower the poor both physically and spiritually! Thank for your prayers and partnership in fighting hunger and introducing people to Christ in Mozambique!
