Over 36 years ago my young sweet heart and wife became a mother. I will never forget the day! We were young, excited, and scared. God has been so good to us. This is a picture just before Chris, our firstborn, came into the world!


Betty has been an excellent mom. She has been and is a very godly lady. She has raised our children, taught them, loved them, been an example to them. She has been more than I could ever have expected in a mom!

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that I love you publicly. You are my dearest friend, dearest coworker, and dearest person on this planet! I love you and I thank you for all these years. I thank God for His wonderful grace and mercy to me in giving me should a wonderful wife!

Here is a picture of my wonderful family just as we started deputation back in 1985!


My whole family has been far more than I ever deserved. I love you guys and I am very proud of all of you!

Happy Mother’s day to Andria, Chris’ wife (mother of 4), Stephanie, our daughter (mother of 8), Joy, our daughter (mother of 3), and Katie, David’s wife (mother of 1 and soon to be 2). You are loved.
