We were both brought up in loving, well-grounded, Christ-centered families. Learning about God’s love for us and coming to a knowledge of His truth at a young age, we both accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and want to serve Him with our lives.
We spent the last five years serving among university students at the FEU de Grenoble in France. We were involved in discipleship, leading small groups, managing a food distribution to international students in need and reaching out to the international community through the ministry and local church. Our son Rusty was born there in 2016 and Max was born there in 2018. We also spent two summers helping out Pierres Vivantes (Entrepierres) with hospitality and grounds keeping.
While we were working with the FEU in France, Christian camps and ministries frequently requested our help with programs or maintenance. David regularly helped a local camp and gap-year Bible school, Champfleuri, with building projects. We occasionally volunteered at other camps, but they often lacked accommodations for a family.
We love serving in this way, but also realize how important it is for our family to have our own familiar space. God provided a nearly perfect travel trailer that will be our home. We can transport our “home” to ministries in North America all throughout the year to help with various projects. This “tiny home” will be easy to pack up and go back overseas for short periods of time when needed. At the moment, David is doing architectural drawings for Champfleuri from abroad and plans to return to France this spring to help install the project he’s designing.
We are currently transitioning back, reconnecting with our local assembly and community and helping with the needs there. We are also sharing about the Lord’s work at various churches and doing some renovations on our travel trailer. We have been commended to this new work by Malvern Bible Chapel and have partnered with Christian Workers Fellowship and Assembly Care Ministries to handle communication and tax-deductible ministry giving.
