I am a third generation missionary to Africa. My Grandparents were one of the first missionaries into West Africa back in the 1920’s and my parents were in Ivory Coast for 42 years. I grew up in a boarding school in Ivory Coast and came back to the United States for college. I attended Toccoa Falls Bible College and graduated with a Missions degree. I met my wife at Toccoa. We previously served in Africa as missionaries with the Christian and Missionary Alliance. In 1987 we went to Burkina Faso and served there for 15 years. We went to an unreached area called Hounde. To God’s Glory during that time we saw over 120 churches planted and to begin to open the doors to an unreached people group called the Pougouli. We ended our term in 2001. In February one of our Pastors spoke on “getting out of the box we are in” and God spoke to not only me, but my wife and has called us back to Burkina. We are excited to see what God has in store in the coming years.
