Caleb is a dedicated father, a loving husband and sincere follower of Jesus.   As a high school student growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, Caleb was exposed to the needs of the world through a variety of short-term mission experiences.  These experiences are what compelled him to make a difference in the lives of children for the glory of Jesus.  He is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, Il) and Fuller Theological Seminary (Pasadena, Ca). Caleb had the privilege of serving and leading in the Children's Ministry of Westside Church in Omaha, Nebraska for the 10 years prior to leaving for Uganda. He loves soccer, Nebraska football, outdoor activities, and trying new things. 

Suz is a loving mother, caring wife and faithful servant of Jesus.  She was born and raised in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and comes from a long line of missionaries.  Suz knew the missionary life was right for a lot of people in her family, but never thought it would be right for her.  God used a summer-long ministry experience to open up Suz’s heart to serve Him with her life.  She graduated from Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, Il) with a degree in Educational Ministries, and served as a preschool teacher in Omaha prior to leaving for Uganda.  She loves to explore, clean, talk, and laugh with friends. 

 
Judah loves to play, jump and make believe.  He is known to get lost in the world of his imagination.  He loves cars, trucks and trains. Judah is a loving big brother and fierce protector of his family.

Levi loves to dance, run and have fun!  If there is a hill to roll down or a puddle to splash in, Levi will find it.  He loves music, dogs, horses and pretty much anything on four legs.  He is sweet spirited yet tough and resilient.

Our third boy was born November 4, 2015 at 5:51 p.m. He was 5lb 6oz and 18.5 inches long. Suz and Asher are doing well.  

Asher means ”Happy” or “Blessed,” and Tobin means “God is good.”  Both are very fitting.  

Judah and Levi are very proud big brothers.  They enjoy holding him and giving him lots of love.
