Happy Anniversary to us…

Celebrate with us as we rejoice in 35 years of marriage.

The adventures that we have had together in serving the Lord, and raising 4 kids has been amazing. Looking forward to more exciting times together as God reveals more of his plan for our lives.

He was with us last July and came back to reconnect and check on the progress of the “Send the Light to the Cities” Project in Prague. While he was here we did not waste his gifting and put him to work training our worship team on a Saturday Seminar and having him minister the Word on the following Sunday.
