Mark & Carla grew up in the same church and were high school sweethearts. After high school they were married and moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend FWBBC now known as Welch College. They began their family there. The have 2 daughters. Their desire to follow and obey Christ's leading, resulted in their return to Indiana where Mark served as minister of music and youth pastor. Carla had responsibilities with children's church. They became foster parents and group home parents adding more than 50 children to their family. From there the Lord led them to Ecuador as empty nesters and then finally to Spain.
It's our goal and desire to glorify the Father in everything we do wherever we may be. We live in a spiritually dark area of Spain and want to be a light in the darkness. We want to disciple the many English-speaking people of our area. We also want to serve our local Spanish -speaking community through teaching English. This includes one on one classes, group classes, and a summer intensive English day camp for both adults and children. English camp is an effective tool to serve the communities in which we are involved. Through this ministry we've distributed more than 400+ bi-lingual Bibles in an area where it is difficult to purchase a Bible. We appreciate the Americans who come and serve and give to make these projects possible.
