Thank you so much for your interest in our ministry to The Madre de Dios department of Peru. We are sent by Faith Baptist Church in Taylors, SC, and we are so thankful for the help and support that they provide. In addition to the blessings from our sending church, we are grateful for the help that we receive from our mission agency, Baptist World Mission.
We trust you will find this website helpful as you keep our ministry in your prayers.A Short Bio:Buddy and Loren grew up in very different areas, with very different backgrounds. Buddy was born and raised in Greenville, SC in a good church. God graciously a loving home, and attended Bob Jones from kindergarten through grad-school. He made a profession of faith at a young age, but continually had doubts until the age of 18 when God did a thorough work in his heart.Loren was born in New York City, and only briefly attended church before her parents were divorced, and the home was torn apart. God mercifully brought the family back to himself through some very tough circumstances. Loren was the first saved in her house, and was used of God to bring many other family members to the Lord.Both surrendered to the Lord’s work as teenagers, and believed that God would use them in a primitive or pioneer missions setting. They met at Bob Jones University, and were married shortly after graduation. They quickly joined BWM, and God kindly brought their support in within just one year! They moved to Peru in August, 2007, and were able to jump right into ministry since they already spoke spanish.Birthdates:Buddy – 12.3Loren – 8.4Joseph – 11.2.08Isaiah – 7.11.10Abigail – 1.20.12anniversary: 5.15.04
