L & D

L and D B have been in ministry partnership for most of their 33+ years of marriage. Whether it was their work with the homeless, opening their home to foster children, teaching ESL, and for the past 12 years, serving as pastor and wife at a church in California, they have had a heart to serve others in Christ's name. Where God has opened doors of opportunity, they have tried to enter and follow Him. Through SEND International, they are ready to pass through a new door.

L and D met in Texas, and were married there in 1981. L's work brought them to the West coast three years later, and the transplanted Texans began a new chapter of their lives in what seemed like a foreign country. Soon after settling in, they began to serve in their local church association, where D coordinated mission trips to an orphanage in Mexico and also volunteered with women's and children's shelters in their community. Together, they also served with a Rescue Mission, working with "motel kids" a large category of children in unstable and nearly homeless families. Everywhere they looked, there was great need. Behind the fascade of affluence in California were hurting and hopeless people. The burden was one they could not run from. Five years ago the Lord opened the door to a surprising ministry among Arabic Muslim refugees. Their hearts were instantly moved to embrace and love a people that they once viewed as frightening and dangerous.

L and D B have three children and four grandchildren all of whom bring them great pride and joy. But their desire to see the glory of God proclaimed among the nations compels them to leave friends and family and work among Muslims in Europe. As they prepare to walk through this latest door of opportunity, they invite you to come alongside them in prayer and as a financial partner. The work they will be doing among an unreached Muslim people group is really an extension of the passion they had in California. It is the desire to bring comfort to the hurting, hope to the hopeless, and salvation to the lost, through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please consider being a part of the great things the Lord will do in the work to which He has called L and D.
