BillI had the privilege of growing up in a Christian home under two godly parents. I was saved at the age of six, but didn't start living for the Lord in high school. I took various missions trips to Utah where the Lord began to burden me for missions. I graduated from Piedmont Baptist College in Winston-Salem, NC with a B.A. in Biblical Studies. I worked as a youth pastor for a couple of years and then as an assistant director at Pioneer Bible Camp in Utah for seven years. In 1997 I was ordained and in July 2002 we were accepted as appointees with Biblical Ministries Worldwide. The Lord led us to Ecuador where we arrived on the field in 2005. We are currently in our second term church planting in Loja.
I was born in Bremerton, Washington. We did not attend church and I had virtually no formal spiritual education. At the age of ten I was invited to attend AWANA with a neighborhood friend, which I continued to do. It was lots of fun, and I even finished an entire handbook, but without anyone ever explaining to me what I was learning about. At the age of 12, all of that changed. Dad got a transfer to Utah, and our lives changed completely. We ultimately began attending Kaysville Bible Church In Utah, and in October of 1984 I was trusted Christ as my personal Savior. I met Bill in 1989 in Utah and we began dating at Piedmont. We were married on June 13, 1992 and I graduated in 1994. I enjoy homeschooling the girls, oil painting, and reading.
