Angela & I met in college. After college we married and moved to Wichita Kansas. We lived and worked there for 5 years before entering the training with New Tribes Mission (NTM).
Having grown up in Brazil, it’s like coming home for me. However, this is all NEW to Angela & our children. Thankfully NTM (and the Lord!) helped us prepare for all the changes. Now here we are in Brazil!
Currently we are serving at the boarding school for missionary kids (MKs)….and we are EXCITED to be here!!!!
This semester we are working in a number of different ministries…Angela is working in the ‘business office.’ She’s also being mom & wife, getting to know & encourage students, does some subbing, supply buyer (with me) and various other things.
I (Joel) am teaching Bible classes to Jr. High & High School students, teaching a Bible class and Portuguese class to 3rd & 4th graders, helping out in the maint. dept., life guard duty, being dad & husband, preparing the NEW Bible curriculum for upcoming classes, supply buyer (with Angela), serving on the leadership team and perhaps a few other things as well. 🙂
Life on the Amazon is busy!!!
