Doug and Sally married in 1980. With the first 3 of our six children, we went to Dallas, TX in 1986 to attend the Criswell College, a ministry of First Baptist Church, then the largest Southern Baptist Church in America.

We sat under the ministry of Dr. W. A. Criswell, the successor to Dr. George W. Truett. Their combined ministries permitted First Baptist-Dallas to have only two pastors in 100 years! Doug was ordained as an evangelist at Central Baptist Church on Haymarket Road in Ryle, TX in 1988.

1988

As a student at the Criswell College on a mission trip to El Salvador, preaching in the market of San Salvador.

A civil war made open-air evangelism a risk, but by God's grace there were 600 adult decisions for Christ in one week of ministry.

1992-1995

Raising support and preparing to go to Poland.

We rented a small apartment in north Warsaw for a few months prior to renovating this log home in a nearby city.
