5th Grade

I am the fifth child in a family of ten, born into a farming family where church was the center to everything. I attended a Lutheran grade school and high school. I graduated from Dr. Martin Luther College (now known as MLC). While at New Ulm, I met my future wife, Cindy. Upon graduation, Cindy received a call to Anchorage, AK. We were married a year later and she took me away to Alaska. We worked side by side at the school there for many years. God gave us two sons and two daughters to raise and guide. After the school was closed, the Lord called us to serve the children at Peridot. I am enjoying this year much more than the ‘covid year’, being able to work with the children rather than speaking to a computer.

Hobbies & Interests:
I enjoy camping, fishing, gardening, and woodworking (building things). I also enjoy crossword puzzles & sudoku.

Favorite Quote:
“Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.” (Galileo Galilei)

Favorite Bible Verse:
“Let the little children come to me, do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14.
