Shortly after retiring from a 20-year career with the US Navy (Seabees), I met Louise while she was working as a travel nurse on Martha’s Vineyard. We married in January of 2003. A mutual love for the Lord and His Holy Word spawned an interest to pursue missionary work. I currently teach children with special needs while Louise works as a dialysis registered nurse. Louise enjoys visual hobbies such as painting, gardening and cooking whereas my interests include doing physical work, raising farm animals and attempting to play different musical instruments. We both enjoy meeting new people and developing lasting friendships.
