Our marriage at the age of 18 appeared to be doomed from the beginning, but God stepped in and saved us both on the same night in our home alone with the Bible! It has been an adventure of faith ever since that night in 1972. The Lord led us to Baptist Mid-Missions and we joined the team in 1980. Four years later, we were on the field in Peru. We both taught for two years at SBP, the Baptist seminary in the city of Trujillo, then we moved to the capital, Lima, to begin church planting. In all, we have been blessed to start three churches, teach for the Arriba program, hold Effective Bible Teaching seminars, and run a small bookstore in our home for Editorial Bautista Independiente, BMM’s Spanish publication ministry. In 2016, we left Peru to begin full-time positions there at EBI which is located in Sebring, Florida. Gary is the Director of Growth and Development, and Penny is the graphic designer.
