After completing Bible school at the Lutheran Bible Institute in Seattle, I began mission work by establishing and managing the first evangelical outreach to seafarers in Manila, Philippines where I lived with my family. Within two years, I had developed a functioning ministry and trained a national successor who continues to this day. It was my honor to be called to develop the work at Anchor House in Port Manatee, Fl. from 1992 to 1996. In 2009, I was called back to resume the leadership position of Anchor House, a mission that is dear to my heart and for which I have great passion. I am thankful to share the work of this great mission with you.
