Garry grew up as a preachers kid- his dad was a minister in the Reformed Church. My father is a dairy farmer in New Jersey, as many of Garry's uncles were in Ontario and the Netherlands.
We got married and started farming after Garry got his BS in dairy husbandry. We have farmed in NJ, the Catskills in New York, in Ontario and for the last 11 years Manitoba. We have a daughter and seven sons. Garry has been involved in choir and we have both taught Sunday school. Four years ago Garry went on a vision trip to China and felt called to misson. Since then I have gone back to school at Providence College in Otterburne to get a Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages degree, which I will recieve in April 2009.
