John and Margaret were both widowed when they met on a mission trip in Mexico in Nov. 2018. They started dating long-distance (CO <-> AZ) in Dec. 2019 and got married in Feb. 2021.

They both have been involved in short-term missions, John for about 27 years to over 30 countries, and Margaret since 2006, mostly in Mexico, Peru and southern Africa. John primarily enjoys “action” trips – repairing water wells, helping build churches, playing with the kids, teaching CPR and First Aid. Margaret likes to return to the same places over and over for the relationships, and she enjoys teaching Bible studies with women and spending time listening to their stories and praying with them. 

Going back to Malawi in 2023 will be a perfect blend of some of their favorite things.

Between them, they have seven grown children, four sons/daughters in-love, and 17 grandkids from ages 5-23. They are active in two local churches now as they divide their time between Sedalia, CO and Phoenix, AZ.  

Their key verse as a married couple is Philippians 1:27, Let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ… standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.
