Paul grew up in Victoria, BC, Canada, and Sharyn grew up in Ft. McMurray, AB, Canada, later moving to Victoria with her family. Paul was 15 when he accepted Jesus into his heart; Sharyn was 16 when she came to know the Lord through the youth ministry at Saanichton Bible Fellowship. After graduating high school, Sharyn put herself through university while Paul worked with his Dad in the construction field. In May 1991, Paul and Sharyn married in Victoria. In 1995, they started their mission training with a Discipleship Training School onboard the M/V Anastasis with Mercy Ships. In June 1997, Paul and Sharyn moved from Canada to the Dominican Republic to work the poor through evangelism, construction, school sponsorship, hosting mission teams, and medical ministry.
On December 24, 2001, their son, Noah, came home and on December 24, 2004, their daughter, Samantha, came home.
Paul directs all of the construction, Biblical teaching, and evangelism departments of the ministry. Sharyn directs the medical clinic, the sponsorship program, accounting, correspondence and communication.
