A lot of people ask us how we got to the point in our lives that we have decided to MOVE TO AFRICA?! Here’s the short version for Ryan.
Ryan was long ago bitten by the travel bug. Tomorrow (May 1), Lord willing, he will visit his 47th state. Last week, for business, he visited his 18th country. So, maybe it isn’t a surprise that he would be interested in living in another country.
A little over 6 years ago Mom and Dad moved to China, with Dad working for a company and both of them meeting and assembling with local congregations for almost 5 years. This kind of paved the way so to speak for me to know that it was possible to live internationally with a goal of being able to work with Christians, while not being a full time evangelist.
About 30 months ago, a smart, pretty redhead named Haley walked into Ryan’s life and the rest as they say, is history.
So the opportunity to travel abroad and work and worship with the woman I love… how could I say no?
