Bob was saved while in college. Cala was saved at 12 years old. After we were married we joined Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma, City. We surrendered to full time service after a S.M.I.T.E. trip to Old Mexico, and six months later enrolled in Baptist Bible College. God called us to the mission field through His Word while we were there. While still in college, we had the privilege of starting Bible Baptist Church in Bixby, OK, driving down there on weekends.
We were approved as Baptist Bible Fellowship missionaries to Brazil in May of 1972. Our sending church is Southwest Baptist in Oklahoma City, Bro. Jason Gaddis, pastor. We were in Brazil for eight years. The Lord allowed us to establish one indigenous work with three congregations out of the first work. The doctors told us that Cala could no longer live in Brazil because of her health and recommended that we change fields.
The Lord opened the door to work with American Indians which we have been doing for the last 42 years. We had the privilege of establishing two works among the Navajos in NW New Mexico, started a church on the Quinault Reservation in Washington State, and have been here in Southeastern Oklahoma working among the Choctaws for 26 years. After meeting in a house a couple of years, the Lord gave us a church building on 20 acres. We organized the church January 9, 2000 with 20 charter members. We also have two missions and turned the first one in Bethel, OK over to Bro. Josh Harjo. The second one is 30 miles west in Swink, OK. We have had the privilege of starting 11 churches so far. We have four children. Our oldest son, Bobby, is married with three children and seven grandchildren. They live in Georgia. Our next son, Matthew, is married with three children, and they also live in Georgia. (Matt was two weeks old when we started driving down to Bixby to start the church there). Our youngest son, Mark, works with us here as assistant pastor in the Idabel church. He is married and has two sons and a grandson. He and his wife completed the missions course at Baptist Bible College (1994).
Our only daughter, Susanne, is married and they have three children and are members of New Haven Baptist church in Krebs OK. All of our children are faithfully serving the Lord. Thank you for your investment in our ministry and our family over the years.
