I’m very passionate about international missions and development work, particularly in low resource countries. My wife and I have a good amount of personal experience living and traveling abroad, and want to use the knowledge and skills we’re learning to make a difference in the lives of people around the world. I also love being active outdoors and I enjoy leading others to do the same. I believe that enjoying the outdoors is a great way to stay healthy, challenge yourself, and keep focused on the things that really matter in life.
