We are so thankful for the part our children have played in the ministry throughout the years. We always believed they were our team. When we first went to the field, our oldest, Philip was only two and Hannah was one. Joshua was born in Brasileia, Brazil, where the first church plant was and then Benjamin was born while we were home on furlough. We returned to Brazil when he was only 9 months. So all they knew growing up was the mission field.
This is one of the more recent pictures of our family taken on December 19,2020, at our daughter’s wedding. She married Jared Quirk. All of our children have attended Pensacola Christian College or are currently attending.
