About me

Introduction Many of you who will read this page know me, so you already know that I love to cook, travel and take pictures. You also know that Jim and I were AG missionaries in Europe from 1988 to 2007, teaching at Continental Theological Seminary in Belgium and Iso Kirja Bible College in Finland. Our last year in Europe we were also part of the pastoral staff at Espoo International Christian Fellowship in the Helsinki area. We have returned to the States because I have been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). This return to America was a bit before we had planned it, but none before God planned it. So we are now back in Wisconsin where we taught school before going to Europe. We continue to do missions projects with the Regional Director of AGWM Europe, Greg Mundis. We have purchased and remodeled the home that Jim built for his parents in 1979. Grandpa and Grandma's house is staying in the family! :-) One of our claims to fame is that we are "Mummo and Ukki" (Finnish words for Grandma and Grandpa) to five grandchildren: Reuben, Levi, Elliana, Micah, and Jolene. Our other is that as of June 1, 2008 we have have been married 40 years! mm
