Proverbs 16:9 "A man's heart plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps."

Andrew is always amazed at the connections and calls God makes in the lives of his disciples. "I became a believer when I was 13 but it took time in the body of Christ for me to understand the steps God has determined for me. I never thought I would have anything to contribute to missions in other countries but God has led me to trust Him and go. That trust opened a whole new level of faith, understanding about who God is, His love and how He works in unexpected ways around the world. I'm humbled he has led me to be a part of Sea of Hope Ministries."

Andrew is blessed to be married to his wife, Laurie, for 28 years and a dad to two beautiful  young women, Madelyn and Lydia. He is an active partner of Hillside Community Church in Keller, Texas and spends his time leading a bible study each week, facilitating Financial Peace University classes, serving at Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County, and assists the Proclaim Cuba ministry. He looks forward to the next steps God has for him.
