David grew up as a missionary kid in Tanzania and Kenya, and Audrey grew up in Upstate New York, where her dad was a preacher. David and Audrey both graduated with bachelor’s degrees from Harding University and married in June 2010. After graduating they moved to China for a year to teach English, and once they moved back to the States in 2012 God gave them a renewed desire for African missions. They moved to Tanzania in July of 2014 and are excited to see the ways that God is working in the city of Dar Es Salaam.
David and Audrey first went to Tanzania together in 2009 on a mission’s internship. Later they were connected with the two other couples on the team, the Shumans and Sims, and found that they too had interned in Tanzania. After much prayer and discussion, it seemed clear that God was leading us to the Tanzanian people. The team also feels God is leading them towards coastal Tanzania, where there is a strong Islamic presence and a desperate need for Christ.
