Chad and Sarah met at Southeastern University. They have been involved in children’s ministry and owned a small business in Fort Myers. All of a sudden God led us to sell our business and house and begin preparing for the mission field with aviation. They do not know where God is leading them but strongly believe that God led them to train with Harvest Aviation. They also feel that when God bids us “follow me” we must be obedient even if it means stepping into the unknown. As a family, along with their children Malachi, Judah, Noah, and Selah, they are excited about the future that God has in store for them.
While serving through short-term mission trips,
John and Andrea learned that missionaries can do very little without the support of others.
Through the years, a compassion for missionaries grew within them. Every year God continued to show them the desperate need for support organizations. While attending the Sun and Fun Festival they walked by the Harvest Aviation table and read the shirt that said
«Serving those who Serve».
They have been married 20 years and have 4 children; Mason, Lia, Tyler, and Charlotte.
