George has been married to Sheila for over 50 years. They have two daughters and son in laws, five grandchildren and one great grandchild. George is a retired metallurgist and during his successful career would spend vacation time with various organizations showing the Jesus Film along the Amazon River, and its tributaries. During these times, He and Sheila would see the serious spiritual and physical needs of the people, which really spoke to them. They felt God's call into ministry, and have since, made many trips back to Brazil, Nigeria, Malawi and to many places across North America.
