My Team

Let me introduce you to my team...
First Shirley, my wife, is my helper and friend. We met on the internet in 1998 and got married in 2000. Shirley is from Oregon and I am from Pennsylvania. Shirley is a great wife!

Next are my children Hadden and Savannah. Savannah was born in 2000 and Hadden was born in 2002. They are great kids who play well together and give us many smiles.

Finally, our doggies, Mercy (brown) and Lilly (white) round up our family. We got them from a shelter in Pennsylvania in 2007.

A New Home

"Leave your land, your relatives, and your father's home. Go to the land that I will show you." (Genesis 12:1 GW)

In October 2007, I moved my family from Lititz, PA to Alabama to begin an assignment as an Assistant Chaplain at St. Clair Correctional Facility with We Care Program. My wife, two children, two dogs, one fish and I pulled our travel trailer to the Gadsden, AL area. We stayed at Noccalula Falls campground for two months. During that time we searched the area for a place to live. We believe God showed us the above property and presented to us the opportunity to buy it. While we waited to settle for it and while we prepared it, we lived on the prison land for six months. On Memorial Day 2008, we pulled onto the ridge of the land shown above.

"He moved on to the hills east of Bethel, and he put up his tent-with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east." (Genesis 12:8 GW)
We moved on to the hills east of Birmingham, and set up our camper-with Birmingham on the west and Ashville on the east.

"Those who live at the ends of the earth are in awe of your miraculous signs. The lands of the morning sunrise and evening sunset sing joyfully." (Psalms 65:8 GW)

We have enjoyed the sunsets on the ridge. It is a reminder of God's creative power and His great love for us.
