Anniversary: May 26th
Birthdays: Matt - 12/5 | Marcie - 12/6 | Mattie - 3/26 | Libbie - 10/7 | Ellie - 11/30
Matt accepted Christ at 14, and Marcie accepted Christ at 6. They met in college and were married in May 1990. Today, they enjoy three daughters. In 2006, Matt was challenged to step out in faith and take a short-term trip to Africa. After that trip, he felt a greater burden for the unreached and unengaged people groups around the world. God began to work in their hearts and lives for what He has planned for their future. They began to implement a biblical foundation for financial management and exposed their children to cross cultural work by hosting several visiting missionaries. Matt once again traveled overseas on a prayer journey in southwest China. Shortly after that trip, Matt & Marcie made a commitment to begin a journey of faith...to begin full-time service among the unreached/unengaged in Asia. Both Matt & Marcie feel humbled by God's desire for them to serve Him. God has shown Himself faithful - working in their lives and providing confirmation along the way many times throughout this journey. They move forward knowing God can strengthen them to do His work. They are excited to see how God will continue to direct the entire family.
