Our long-term missionary team started training, and we want to give you the opportunity to virtually meet each of the six adults moving to Nasir, South Sudan later this year. This is the final installment in our series intended to introduce you to new members of the Every Village family!

When did you first learn about South Sudan?

My wife brought home a book about the Lost Boys, and then I went on a short-term trip.

How did you know God was calling you to live in South Sudan?

I felt a burden after hearing about the war and the things the South Sudanese endured, but after I took the trip to Nasir--I knew without a doubt.

When was your first trip abroad? Where did you go?

My first trip was in 2011 and I went to Nasir, South Sudan.

What excites you most about being in South Sudan?

The people, the relationships we will build, and knowing I get to be a part of God's kingdom advancing.

What has God been teaching you recently?

To rely completely on Him instead of myself.

Biggest thing you'll miss when you're in South Sudan?

The people here, my family, and friends.

Have any special talents? What are they?

Sure. I can draw pretty well.

Movies or music.
