About Dave

I grew up in a faithful Christian home and cannot remember a time in which I did not know about Christ. I can remember every morning at the breakfast table memorizing Scripture with my mom. When I was about 4 years old I can remember sitting in my bed thinking about the truths that I had been taught. I do not know exactly how much I understood at the time, but I did know that some people were God’s children and some were not. So, I went out to my mom and and asked how I could be saved and prayed with her. Since then I have grown in knowledge and understanding. I have grown to know the love of Christ more deeply and to know that the world is full of people who are lost. My goal and desire in life is to spread the name of Christ to the world. Specifically, we are currently living in Cameroon and working with the Kwakum, a Bible-less people in the East Region. I am happy to be the husband of an amazingly godly wife and father of four beautiful children (see below).

About Stacey
I grew up on a farm in central California and lived there until I went off to college. My parents both became believers around the time I was born and faithfully shared the Gospel with me. The good news of the Gospel “clicked” when I was at a Vacation Bible School and they talked about how the Lord was against us because of our sin. I knew of God but I did not realize he was against me until that moment. I remember being very afraid of God. They soon told me about Christ, about how he took the wrath of God for us on the cross and that if we have faith in him, he would cleanse us from all of our sin. It was then that I went forward to receive Christ as my Savior. I was three years old and from that point on my love for Christ and his Word has continued to grow. I am so grateful to my Lord for saving me at an early age and I am glad to serve him in Cameroon, but I mostly look forward to being with him in Heaven.
