Paul

Birth date: September 16

Paul’s parents were missionaries in the Philippines who taught him early how to trust in Jesus and shared with him the vision of being an instrument to expand God’s Kingdom. Paul began trusting Jesus as his personal Savior as a young boy but really began having a personal quiet time and growing in his faith during the ninth grade. While Paul was in college he felt God calling him into missions so after graduating with a degree in communications, Paul went to seminary. Paul and Margie have been serving as missionaries to the Waray people of the Philippines for 21 years.
