We have been on a journey of growing deeper roots in the Bibilical worldview ourselves. We both grew up in Christian homes and attended Christian schools, Tim in Ontario and Angie in Michigan. In 1997, Tim moved to Michigan to study at Reformed Bible College and met Angie who was studying at Calvin College. While there, he spent two summers with I.D.E.A. Ministries in Mexico where God opened his eyes and heart to cross-cultural missions. Then, after graduating and getting married, God opened the door for us to join CRWM and serve for two years as EFL teachers in Ukraine and for one year as house parents of a student hostel in Nigeria. In 2004, feeling called to long-term, cross-cultural missions, but the need for further education, we moved to the Netherlands where Tim studied at Tyndale Theological Seminary while Angie worked at Tyndale and volunteered at Interserve Europe (a missionary-sending agency), Crossroads International Church, and Scarlet Cord (a ministry in Amsterdam’s Red Light District).

In 2006, God called us to serve long-term in Uganda, where we have been ever since, in partnership with CRWM, International Teams Netherlands, and now World Outreach Ministries. During these years, despite the struggles with infertility, the death of thirteen adopted embryos and the challenges of domestic & international adoption, God has built our family to include Miriam, Avalien, Moses, Zulea, Eliana, and Amara—each with their own miraculous story. In terms of ministry, God has developed in us a vision, mission and strategy through which we, together with our ever-changing team of short-termers and long-termers, those we have been walking alongside and local and international partners, have witnessed God transform countless people, including church and ministry leaders, youth who were child soldiers, boys who lived on the streets of Soroti, drunkards, prisoners, orphans, people who are blind… the list goes on. To be sure, God has been doing and will continue to do “immeasurably [BEYOND] all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

As we look back on our lives, we can see how God has been lovingly leading us step-by-step to where we are today and look forward with excitement and trust to what He has in store for us next. Please pray for us as we head into what appears to be the final phase of our current ministry work in Uganda, and as we determine our next steps in ministry. Please also pray for us, our family, our team, our partners, those we are walking alongside, and those they are reaching within Uganda and BEYOND, that “out of His glorious riches God may strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. And pray that we, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that [is BEYOND] knowledge—that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:16-21).
