Jeff serves in an area where not all that long ago there were more cows than people, or so my wife tells me. I have met Jeff at some Awana events and he is a fun loving guy and if you ever have the pleasure of meeting him, ask him why he does the “five count” in a unique way.
I just have one bit of advice for Jeff and his other missionary counterparts in the frozen north… remember that southern relatives/guests have been known to freeze at room temperature 🙂
As I always do, I asked Jeff some questions and below are his responses. My prayer is that this will help you get to know him, his family and ministry a little bit better:
How long have you been an Awana Missionary?
What area do you serve? Northern New England – Maine, New Hampshire & Vermont
# of churches under your care: 85
Fun Facts: Favorite food, favorite sport, something interesting people don’t know about you, etc…(whatever info you want to share):
Favorite food- hamburger & Fries or Sonny’s Bar-b-Que, I could eat them every day with a hot fudge sundae to top it all off.
Why are you an Awana Missionary?
I felt God calling us to full time ministry, love Awana, love serving the churches.
Share something God is doing in your ministry:
9 new starts this year, for an area our size and rural, that is high and keep us busy.
What advice would you give to a local Awana Commander or Leader?
keep in regular contact with your local missionary, they can help you and encourage you and you can do the same for them
How can we specifically pray for you over the next month?
safe travel to HQ for meetings
