I first put this page online because a pastor asked me if there was some information about us online, because he wanted to copy our bio for the church bulletin.
I thought about it, and realized that all the information was scattered about and not in one place. It also occurs to me that visitors to the site might want to know a little bit more about me themselves.
So here goes:
First, I should mention that we’re the Assemblies of God missionaries to Stanford University. Now here’s some personal stuff:
