God called us to Africa in 1991 as missionaries to the youth of the country of Namibia. I quit my $70,000 per year Aerospace job, I cashed out my 401K plan and we (Jenny and our three kids) moved to Africa. We came over as "tent makers", in other words, I got a job at the University ($17,000/year) to pay the bills and Jenny became the Youth Pastor of a local church ($200/year).
This was a powerful time in our lives and were blessed by God in many ways. We did not intend to ever come back to the USA, however, when we adopted our two Angolan children, the only way to complete the adoption was to move back to the USA. Therefore, near the end of 1993, we returned to the the USA.
