The Family and their Ministry ID 151
We are a fun-loving, hard-working, God-worshiping family. We love music, creating, and cross-cultural living. Our family has three specific missions: 1. Direct outreach and evangelism 2. Training local and foreign believers 3. Intercession. Our nanny would be able to grow in strategic intercession.
We have five children, Lillian born 2009, Debbie born 2011, Eleanor born 2013, Adam born 2014, David born 2016 and we are expecting another child in May 2019. We met in Sudan as singles and were married in 2008.
