In 2006 we left our work in the pastorate in Franklin, TN and moved our family of four to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. 

This website is a little bit of our story.

Bernie and Renee' spent 13 years serving at a great little church in Franklin, TN before coming to the Land of Blue Sky. Renee' is now involved with women's ministry and discipleship, and assists Bernie with student ministry. She will also soon be helping with the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) program in Ulaanbaatar. She also enjoys baking, reading and writing. Bernie is responsible for the Ulaanbaatar branch of leadership training, as well as student discipleship and the International Church in the city. He has taken on photography and videography as hobbies, along the side of playing the guitar. 

We feel like Jonathan and Cori should still be ages 6 and 8. They're not. 

Jonathan just recently finished his studies at the EI School of Biblical Training

Cori has graduated from High School and is praying about her next steps. 

Mercy is our Dog. She enjoys ham.
