In 2001, God called us from Key Largo Baptist Church, our home church in Florida, into full time ministry. (We had begun attending Key Largo Baptist in 1996). Doug felt called to go back to school, to Bible College, so we packed everything up and moved to Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Pineville, KY, in the Fall. By December of that year we were able to sell our home and business in Key Largo. While attending Clear Creek we attended Mill Creek Baptist Church in Stoney Fork, Ky, and they adopted us as their missionary family.
In the summer of 2004, we took our first mission trip to share the message of life. We spoke at six churches in Florida on this trip. (But we do not have any pictures of these churches)
