I grew up in the Central African Republic as a missionary kid and loved every minute of it! It was during that time God laid on my heart the desire to have a long-term impact on the people of CAR. Because of that burden, my wife, Sue, and I went back as missionaries with our two young boys, Mike & J.P., in 1987. After eight years there, God redirected us back to the U.S., but He always provided a way to continue to serve the people of the CAR, whether through trips to do Bible teaching, or service projects in community development, or by helping with the orphan care program. I’m thrilled that I can now work through VisionTrust to continue to help touch the lives of the orphans in this impoverished, land-locked country in the middle of Africa!
