The Journey Together

It started in 1981 when we (Paul & Penny) were married. At the time we were living in Australia working, seeking God’s will, and realizing the dreams God had for our family. In the years to follow we changed tracks and started planting churches in Australia. The call to missions grew stronger in our lives and culminated in us doing our DTS with YWAM Surrey Hills, Victoria, Australia in 1991.


Our Children

Luke, Jaci, Zac, and Caleb have completed school at the Family Learning Centre in Chiang Rai.

After Completing Our DTS (Discipleship Training School with YWAM)

We joined staff at YWAM Surrey Hills in Melbourne in 1991.  After serving in Australia for eight years, our family made our way to Thailand. We arrived in Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand in March 1999. Penny started a ministry caring for orphans and single mothers affected by HIV/AIDS, and Paul became involved in leadership training with mission organizations and local churches. Since 2005, Paul has helped develop the international DTS for YWAM Chiang Rai, as well as serving for several years as YWAM Chiang Rai location leader and northern region YWAM leader. Most recently serving on the international team for YWAM’s LDC (Leadership Development Course).
