Our Family: Nancy and I, our oldest son John and his wife Danielle, our middle son Anthony, and our youngest son Dan

Nancy and I have been married since August 1982, and we have been on an adventure together ever since. We have 3 sons John, Anthony, and Dan. I had an industrial equipment and supplies distributor & manufacturers rep. company for 23 years, between 1983 and 2006. Then we sold my business and everything to follow God's call to become self-funded missionaries in Brazil. Nancy and I lived and served to help others for 3 years in Sao Paulo, and then for another 4 1/2 years in Santos Brazil. We helped and trained many churches, and also started a project called Quality Of Life to help students, teachers, and families to have a good quality of life and a good future.

In early 2014 we were led to leave Brazil, despite having a very fruitful ministry there, and we moved to South Florida. Since 2014 we have expanded our missions work to many other countries, and we go on mission trips to 10 countries each year. We were faced with a huge financial challenge to expand and travel to many other countries, since we are self funded and receive no financial support from churches or missions organizations.

Besides learning how to wisely manage finances and be debt free, in the last few years we have had to learn how to travel at greatly reduced costs or for free. Our goal is to travel and have mission trips to 10 countries for the next 3 years... 30 trips to 25-30 different countries. Normally this would cost between $50,000 to $60,000 per year for 2 people.

By early 2020, by God's grace, we will have been missionaries for 15 years, and we will have had 50 mission trips to 30-35 different countries, including to Asia (Japan, South Korea), Africa (South Africa, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Togo, Uganda, Zambia...), South America (Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Argentina...), Central America (Belize, Guatemala, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras...), and the Caribbean (Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic).

The many tools and programs for free or low cost award travel, debt reduction, wise financial management, and frugal living are available to everyone, and it is our hope that the Life & Travel Adventures site will help many people in their lives and to be financially free and debt free.

There are parts of the Life & Travel Adventures site where we will receive some compensation through affiliate programs. We hope that Life & Travel Adventures will help us to partially fund our missions work so that we may continue to go to as many places as possible, and to help as many people as we possibly can. We would really appreciate your support in using this site and some of the products and services offered.
