Don, originally from Hawthorne, NJ, met his wife Gail as single missionaries in Kenya where they served with Africa Inland Mission for 23 years. They and their two children stayed at MRF for a year of home assignment in 1996 and, following their return to Kenya, received an invitation from the Missionary Retreat Fellowship board of directors to consider replacing the retiring director and his wife. Understanding the critical need for missionary housing, and with AIM’s approval, the Lord led them to accept the call and they assumed responsibilities in 2000. Gail went home to be with her Savior in 2018. Don continues to care for the MRF grounds as well as his responsibilities as director.
