Serving in United States of America
From: United States of America
Who we are:Doug is a Certified Public Accountant and a Certified Global Management Accountant. He received an MBA from Pace University and an Master of Arts in Missions from Columbia International University. Esther received a diploma from Moody Bible Institute and a BA in Christian Education from Biola University.
God called us to serve in missions with SIM since 1988. We are thankful for the Hawthorne Gospel Church (NJ), Greenpond Bible Chapel (NJ), Steele Creek Church of Charlotte (NC), Ocean County Evangelical Free Church, and the many friends who partner with us in world mission.
We have dedicated our lives to love and follow Jesus. God has blessed us with four children, two daughter-in-laws, and two grandchildren.
What we do:Please see our blogs for recent prayer updates at:
We have served with SIM for 30 years, first in Bolivia, South America, and now more recently at SIM's US and International Headquarters here in Charlotte.
In Bolivia, we worked with the Quechua people, helped plant a church, and helped with a Christian Medical Center and an Orphanage. Doug serves SIM missionaries by caring for their finances, including support budget budgets, reimbursements, and teaching missionaries to build a prayer and financial support team. Esther served as the Personal Assistant for SIM's Deputy International Director for the Americas through June 2016. She is now on medical leave due to her ALS Lou Gerhig's disease.
We are passionate about:
* reaching the lost
* and equipping and sending out new workers for the kingdom of God
Our support goals this year include raising:
* $937/month for support
* $300/month for ministry expenses
* and adding more prayer partners
We have several prayer and financial partners who have stood with us for over 25 years of ministry. New partners are needed to replace those who have gone home to be with the Lord.
