Dry fried green beans.
We are in a creative access country and use education as our avenue for sharing the gospel. Our early childhood centers work with almost 400 local families and about 80 local staff. A small group of our staff are Christians and strive to find ways to share the gospel with families and co-workers.
While headed toward a vocation in forestry management, the Lord made it clear that I should be working with people to make eternal differences in their life. After too many years of schooling, we did 6 years of American church planting and 4 years of youth and children’s ministry. A second master’s degree qualified me to work overseas in education. For the last 20 years, we have had the privilege of working cross-culturally in Asia.
Lynda and Martyn are both babies of their family who grew up in a small town in southern Oregon and were high school sweethearts. After 40 years of marriage, 5 sons, and 10 grandkids later, they are still in love. The boys all had a great opportunity to grow up in Asia.
