Christian Minuteman Network

I am a missionary with the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.   My wife Carol and I are both disabled.  Five years ago, we took in a little boy.  He is now  8 years old and we have full and permanent legal custody of him.

Over the past 20 years, Carol has had over 10 knee surgeries.  In August of 2015, Carol had to have spinal surgery.  This surgery proved unsuccessful, so she ultimately had to have a spinal fusion surgery in April 2016.

I retired in 2008 and became a school crossing guard with the Lebanon Police Department to help support our missions work.  In October 2015, I took a fall and received a knee injury.  My knee condition continued to become worse.  In May 2016 my knee got so bad that I had to schedule knee surgery. 

Between my knee injury, my diabetes, and my chronic sinusitis, I was unable to continue in my crossing guard job.   Currently, I am continuing to work part-time, but our financial situation is now becoming critical. 

God bless your ministry.  Please pray for ours.   Any donations will be deeply appreciated.
