Jared, born in 1996, is our fifth child and our second born in Africa. As a matter of a fact, we believe he is the only Caucasian baby ever born in Bloléquin, Ivory Coast!
Jared enjoyed living in Africa and until leaving for college was our resident technology expert, helping our guests with their computers, running sound systems in churches where we visited, and helping me show evangelistic videos at conferences or churches.
Jared has been a great big brother to the foster kids we have hosted in our home and now to Jonah, his adoptive brother. He is a favorite uncle to his nephews and nieces.
While in Liberia he took a Taekwondoe class and was able to receive his black belt.
Jared has now enrolled in Liberty University's Mission Aviation program and plans to be a missionary pilot some day in the future.
