Alicia and I were born and raised in Fort Worth, TX, met our senior year in high school and have since been inseparable. Our bond started at 16 and has since grown stronger with each year of growing together in the Lord. We have been married since 1995 and have 2 beautiful daughters. Michaena, 19, is a talented vocalist and will soon be headed to college where she aspires major in Music Education. Marli, 14, likes the Phantom of the Opera, plays the violin, is an avid animal lover and has shown prophetic abilities. Our family has always had a heart for serving and witnessing.
We took our first mission trip to France with GEM teams in October 2012. I immediately knew this was what God wanted us to do. I knew that if it was from the Lord, that He would speak the same desire to Alicia as confirmation. Two months later we came together in agreement hearing the same thing from the Lord and knew this was what we were supposed to do. By Christmas our families were informed of our calling. We were commissioned as missionaries with GEM in June 2013. We are steadily raising our ministry partners needed to get to the field in Europe.
