My Story

I am a teacher of 18 years, having spent many summers working at 4 different Bible Camps, 4 years on the mission field in Zambia, and 16 years of coaching, I have continued to be amazed at how God moves when we pray and follow. My wife, son and daughter love to play, explore and get to know people. We are from Northern Alberta, Canada…not the end of the world but we could see it from there.

Ministry Focus:

Sports/Youth Outreach to build the local church in El Faro of La Paz. Fueled by a love for God, I have coached and discipled youth throughout my teaching and church life for over 19 years. This is where I have seen God moving and reaching others through my obedience and willingness. I look forward to what God will do in La Paz through us.

The People:

Mexico is home to wonderful, friendly people, who are passionate about life. There are many who are in darkness and need the Lord as Savior. The traditions of the past often get in the way of knowing Jesus personally.

Primary Prayer Request:

We are beginning to expand sports ministry, and seeking opportunities to share Christ in partnership with churches through sports. Pray that God will guide and open doors according to his will and pleasure.
