Help4Hope Afrika formed 2010
FaceBook page: Help4Hope Afrika
We were born, raised, married, birthed & raised our kids (that’s how we say it) in Texas. They got ‘reared’ some too!
Jack worked for Baptist Hospital of Southeast Texas where I was working in 1968. That’s were I worked too. We met there. He went on to Texas Eastern Transmission Co. & then to Hi Lo Auto Supply Co where he worked for 20 years. I served there also as bookkeeper for several years but mainly a stay at home mother. I was also active in Christian Women’s Club in Beaumont Texas and North Houston. We also taught Sunday school at Calvary Baptist Church in Bmt. We were 20 years in Beaumont & Houston area and left to fulfill a dream and build a log home in the lower Rocky Mountains in New Mexico. God has been so good to us an provided abundantly. We built our log home 11.5 mi from Cloudcroft & opened a sporting goods store in Alamogordo NM and became very involved in our church in Cloudcroft. In 1993 served our time there (more than what we expected!) sold it about the time we were listening & God began directing our path towards Africa. First hunting & traveling then mission work. In 2002 we became missionaries with East Africa IMB and moved to Kenya. We set up and directed an orientation training for new missionaries coming to east Africa on the ground in Kenya. In 2006 we transferred to Zambia when IMB regions combined and became logistics coordinators for the same orientation for central, eastern & southern Africa. (Sub Saharan). Served two terms + 6 mo w/ IMB & in June 2008 came home to NM to sit on deck of our log home and drink Starbucks & watch the hummingbirds. A year ent by and our hearts began to yearn for Africa and for its people, friends of ours!
In 2010 we returned to start our own NGO (non profit) called Help4Hope Afrika.
For eight years we’ve been driving a 1996 SUV 22 years old now! We very much need to buy a newer SUV in 2018 if we are to continue our work in Zambia, Africa. Please be part of this ministry by giving us a Tax Deductible Donation .
