At 15-years-old, Jeff committed his life to serving Jesus on the mission field in Europe. In her early 20s Carrie knew she was supposed to be a missionary. They met just before she spent a summer in China. Almost instantly knew they knew their lives were prepared for the mission field together.
Jeff is serving with eDOT as their UI/UX Designer where he designs the overall functionality of the software eDOT creates. He designed the new 3.0 version of the C2C Story app. Currently, he is designing a new prayer app that will connect people in prayer for the work God is doing in Europe.
Carrie has been serving at a refugee center in Germany where Syrians, Bosnians, and Albanians all live in close quarters with nothing to do. Not only has she found a way in, she’s become a catalyst to mobilize other women to minister Jesus’ love in this place where war-torn nations our coming to our door.
We’re excited and passionate for the life God has prepared for us in Germany!
I love the creative process and tend to think outside the box. I love looking at something and finding how it can be used for God’s Kingdom. One of my hobbies is designer boardgames. There are many in the genre, but some of the more popular are Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Puerto Rico. When we get to Germany I hope to use these games for God’s Kingdom since many come from there in the first place. I also enjoy playing Nintendo games with my kids and reading Christian science fiction when I find the time and the book.
This last summer I had the chance to work on the sets of our churches VBS program. We had friends over to help and we all had a lot of fun! Right now as we are preparing to go to Germany I don’t have a lot of free time. When I’m not doing mommy stuff, I’m helping Jeff set our meeting times with potential “Armor Bearers.” However when I do have free time, I love to read historical fiction and study German. I’m really bad so far, but it’s still fun to learn. I’m trying to get a head start since when we set foot in Germany, learning will be our main focus for the first 6 months.
I like school, and my favorite subject is science. When I’m home I love to play video games with my dad. I’ve started learning the Trumpet this year. I’ve never tried to play an instrument before. I’m really enjoying the challenge. Toby Mac is my favorite musician.
I love to read books about all kinds of animals, especially dogs, cats, and horses. My dog Duke is the cutest dog in the whole world! I like school, too, and my favorite subjects are art and music. I love anything crafty. Toby Mac is my favorite singer!
I like following around my family and laying at their feet as much as possible. Sometimes I like to run around and chase a ball that they throw for me. My favorite thing of all is to be cradled like a baby and have my belly scratched! One time my family took me camping and all I wanted to do was lay in the tent while the other dogs were rolling in the dirt. So my family started calling me their “sissy dog,” but that’s okay, I don’t mind!
