Bob came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of five through his mother’s teaching. Under the Holy Spirit’s conviction, on September 7, 1941, he received the Lord Jesus. The Holy Spirit then assured him of eternal life. He and his wife Verna were married in 1955 and went to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Mo. to study missions. They were approved in 1962, serving in Hawaii for 23 years. They later worked with the Native Americans in New Mexico and Colorado for 30 years. In 1996 Bob began a ministry partnership with Trans World Radio through short wave radio. Bob has seen much fruit through his ministry, which includes orphanage and literature ministry.
