Alan was born and raised in Georgia. Leah was born and raised in Texas. God brought Alan to Texas to go to seminary in 1984. He and Leah met in church during that time. They both felt the call to missions at a young age. But Leah was 38 and Alan was 43 before God fulfilled that call by taking them to Kenya.
Abbey and Connor were both born in Texas. When we left for Kenya Abbey was 9 and Connor was 7. We had lived in Kenya for 6 years before Ross came to live with us in September of 2006. He was 2 years old and it took us 4 ½ years to complete his adoption.
You can find testimonies of how we were saved and some other details of our life before Kenya on our individual pages.
