Wendell and Heather joined SOAR International Ministries in January of 2020. Wendell met SOAR about ten years ago at a mission’s conference and has been to Russia twice with SOAR in the past two years. They have been involved with Christian ministries for many years which have included youth ministry, managing of a Ronald McDonald House and directing a year round Bible camp and conference center in Colorado. Their backgrounds include accounting and Therapeutic Recreation but a love for the outdoors and camping has led them to 30 plus years in the Christian camping ministry, most recently the directors of a Bible camp for First Nations youth and families operated by UIM International in British Columbia, Canada.
Wendell and Heather have three children, Emily, Cy and Sadie and gained a son-in-law in February of 2020. God has walked them through many trials and joys such as each losing their first spouse to cancer, moving to another country, blending a family, and now following as God is leading them to join SOAR International Ministries in Kenai, Alaska. Please be in prayer as they make the move to Kenai in June of 2020 for a new home, church, school, friends and settling into a new community.
