God has had me studying and teaching about HIV throughout the US and around the world. In 2016 I was blessed to facilitate my 74th HIV Educator Seminar. He has had me travel to 23 countries on four continents with His message of hope and empowering believers to motivate people in their cultures to make choices that will slow the spread of the virus, replace stigma, and bring the Gospel to those living with HIV. Seminar participants develop creative new ways to present a Biblically based HIV education. God has chosen to ordain me as a minister of His Gospel and serve in vocational ministry for most of my adult life in the local church, evangelism, and as a missionary. My wife, Kathy, and I live in Fort Myers, Florida. We have five children and nine grandchildren.
