As teenagers, we each felt an individual call to ministry, specifically world missions. We participated in missions trips through Ambassadors in Missions (AIM) with the Alabama Assemblies of God Youth Ministries.
Beka served as a summer intern with Larry and Melinda Henderson in 2005. We were married on August 20, 2005 and decided to dedicate our lives together to missions work around the world. And that's when our journey truly began!
In September 2006, we led a team from our home church, Lomax Assembly of God, to the Canary Islands to help renovate the Bible School.
We returned to the Canary Islands in July 2007 to work as MAPS volunteers for one year. By then, there was no turning back! We knew we had found our calling and purpose.
After returning to Alabama to raise support, we arrived back in the Canaries in July 2009 as Missionary Associates. Just four months later, we realized we were pregnant with our first child. And it has been a great adventure ever since!
We are currently back in the Alabama raising support to return as appointed missionaries to Italy. (Check out our updates page for more info.)
Our family has also grown since we have been back in the States. Our son Tucker was born in March 2013, and he is a wonderful blessing!
