After 33 years working as an industrial electrician for ExxonMobil, Bob accepted an invitation in March of 2010 to serve on a mission team tasked with installing a potable water well at New Hope Center for Children and Handicapped. The challenge seemed to fit his skill set perfectly. That project was a miraculous success, and the rest is history. Returning to Ethiopia nearly 10 more times since retiring in 2012, there have been many projects. But his real reason for returning is the love from the children, and his love for them. Bob believes these relationships are all important. In everything we do we must leave the children with unwavering confidence in God’s love and provision. Married for 42 years, Bob’s wife Voni is a passionate supporter of Tomorrow Come and New Hope. Together they sponsor multiple children in Ethiopia and in the Philippines.
