About Us

“Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest.” John 4:35

familyDeborah and I, along with our 8 kids, live in central Ukraine as Christian Missionaries to the former Soviet Union.  We moved here in 2008.

I am originally from Canada (go leafs!) and Deb from Zimbabwe (go biltong!), but both American citizens with our home church in Longview, Texas (go Crossroads! www.ccclongview.com).

In 2014, The Lighthouse Cafe was completed and opened in Ukraine, strategically located in the center of our town.

We believe the Kingdom of God is about relationships.  We aren’t about programs, but people.  We’re continually looking for more prayer support and networking with more churches that share our heart to make a difference in this life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Thank you for checking out our site/blog – remember to connect with us on facebook if you haven’t already to learn more!

    Coming from a big family (there’s 8 kids!) it is so encouraging to see a big family involved in full-time missions!! Thank you for being an example in that it is possible to have a large family in missions! (:

    Thank God for your desire to serve our Lord in Ukraine. Thanks for the updates. Be strong and courageous. We continue to pray for your family and the Ukrainian people to enjoy the grace, peace and mercy that is found in our Lord Jesus.
