I’m a 36 year old from DFW, married 15 gracious years, and have a 12 year old son who will be a full fledged teenager this summer. We are members of Duncanville’s First Baptist Church in Texas. My background is diverse, with experiences in automotive, construction, and at latest is information technology, where I currently work for Amazon’s Web Services as a team lead in big data cloud support. You can say I enjoy technology, but the masters in theology I’m working on at Dallas Baptist University is so much more interesting. I cannot wait to see how God will use these experiences for His kingdom, but at the present moment, I’m not serving in any formal ministries.
God’s plan for our lives is to eventually move us to Japan to serve in missions in the next couple of years. Here is my current life’s mission statement:
My life’s mission is to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love others as myself. As an ambassador for Christ, I will be depended upon to coach and encourage others to become disciples of Christ, whose hearts grow closer to God. I will live this kind of life, and lead my family, wherever God compels us, which is here now, and next in Japan.
We have only embarked on this journey 8 short years ago, and prior to that we were very much of the world. There are many more things I must learn, but I’m hoping that perhaps a community like this one will allow me to share in conversations of faith as we take this time to study to show ourselves approved, sharpen one another, and give a defense for the hope that is in us.
Warm regards and by His grace I hope to connect with some of you,
