As a military man, he and his family have lived in
Mississippi, England, Hawaii, Illinois, Germany, Israel,
Turkey, Italy, and Washington DC. After two decades
of such wandering, however, they have settled in the
'tops of the mountains' in the western United States
and are enthusiastically sinking roots.
What I look like
on the inside...
"As a missionary and as a military man, I've traveled the world and seen a

want to spend the rest of my life celebrating."
