We met in August of 1985. Tim owned and operated a nutrition business inside an elite chain of health clubs in San Antonio, Texas. Dhana had just moved with family from Chicago, and was trying to get acclimated to a new city. She got a job as a receptionist at the health club where Tim worked, and on her first day of work, an invitation to join him at Bible Study. A year and a week later, we were married!
We are blessed with five remarkable sons, three wonderful daughters-in-law, and two precious granddaughters.
Six years ago we took our first team from Living Water to a church/orphan home with Foursquare Missions International missionaries Ted and Sou Olbrich. The children we saw had lost and endured unimaginable things. Yet they were filled with something that we all needed more of, and we quickly realized that although they were so young, they were full of the Holy Spirit. The children we met radiated joy unspeakable in the face of horrific circumstances. We knew we were being called to be a part of what God was doing in Cambodia.
Two years ago, the Lord spoke to Tim at the annual Foursquare Pastor’s Conference as the speaker prepared for the offering. The speaker said, “I heard the Holy Spirit say, there are a few people in this audience tonight who, regardless of if you give to this offering tonight, you need to get into the offering!” Tim knew that night that he was being called to Cambodia, and that whatever it took, whatever cost would have to be given, we wanted to obey God’s voice.
We immediately began preparing to move to Cambodia, and in early 2015, were given the honor of becoming Foursquare missionaries to Cambodia. Our goal is to build the local church, share the Gospel, train and release upcoming leaders, and love people!
