We were both born and raised in Christian homes and have lived since childhood as Christians. We have been blessed by God in our lives for many years. He has given us loving families to be a part of, and we have raised five children and, up till now, are blessed with thirteen grandchildren.
Our work with cruise ships has truly opened our eyes to the great need for the sharing of God’s Love amongst those who live and work onboard these amazing “floating communities”. We have, indeed, had numerous opportunities to speak of our faith, and to share with others the wonderful message of Salvation in Jesus Christ.
We look forward now to being able to continue to do so in official capacity as Chaplain with the International Ministry to Seafarers, in partnership with Action International Ministries.
At the beginning, we will work alongside fellow Seafarers/ACTION missionaries, Hans and Trudy Uittenbosch, and their cruise ship ministry, with the goal of eventually taking over the ministry when they retire.
