I was born and raised in Montana to hard working and God loving parents. My dad taught me from a young age about hard work, strong morals, and taking care of those who are in need.
I attended Montana State University to study Construction management and then started my construction company working in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, California and then back to Montana. My wife, Dena, and I have been in construction for over 40 years and moved over 28 times in our 43 years of marriage. The Lord went with us everywhere we went and blessed us with three fine boys and now four fantastic granddaughters. We are blessed with a close family and loving friends.
When we moved back to Montana, Dena and I started a cattle ranch by the Judith Mountains 20 miles from Lewistown. We raised cattle and ranched for over 15 years there. We joined a wonderful church family and continued to make life-long friends and memories.
My Christian life began while working in Wyoming. The Lord led my wife and I to Paradise Valley Christian Church where we accepted the Lord Jesus, gave him our hearts, and became followers of his teachings. While in Wyoming, my Brother in Christ and best friend, Jim Huskey (President of Tomorrow Come Foundation), helped me in my walk with Christ by his example of dedication, service, and love for the Lord.
My first trip to Africa was more of a blessing to me than anything I could have done for the children there. I never experienced what love was more than from what the orphans and other children freely gave. The Lord has opened the door for me to use my construction skills to further his kingdom and I will serve.
This year I was asked to join the board of the Tomorrow Come Foundation and I was blessed to be accepted. The Lord has blessed me beyond anything I desire, and I am overjoyed to share those gifts and blessings with others, to be used by God to further his kingdom.
“Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them”. John 14:23
