“Sonidos Serranos” was begun in March 2008 partly for our parents who were all overseas at the time.

I’m happily married to John Mark, my best friend. Our greatest joy is knowing Jesus Christ as personal Savior. After years of preparing and waiting, we are excited to be in Uruguay as full-time teachers, sharing the message of salvation in Christ alone in this part of the world.
