Where was your first international trip? How old were you?
My first international trip was to Guatemala when I was at 15.
What initially inspired your heart for missions?
The Lord spoke to me while I was helping to dig the foundation for a church on my first mission trip with Brother Mark Geppert.
Where is the most memorable place you have prayer walked and why?
During the Fall of 1984, I was in Nepal with a trekking team that Brother Mark and Charles Mendies were leading. We had just climbed the highest mountain in Kathmandu valley and there was a Buddhist stupa on top of the mountain and I remember climbing on it and proclaiming that “Our God reigns and Jesus is Lord of Nepal.” Every time I am in Nepal, I proclaim the same thing.
