The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. — Luke 10:2-3
Tom (originally from Aurora, IL) and Linda (originally from Benton, PA) came as singles to the staff of TMI in 1978. They were married November 22, 1980 and are blessed with 4 children, Tom, Kalah, Zach and Daniel.
Tom works in the Computer Department and spends his days writing software, taking care of all those little issues that come with computers —a.k.a being at the beck and call of staffers who shout, “Send the Geek Squad” .
Linda divides her time serving in the AIDS Orphans & Street Children and Motorcycle Sunday School Mission programs out of the Director’s Office, teaching in the BIBLE, MISSIONARY & WORK (BMW) Training Center, coordinating the Preteen Program and writing. Linda also serves as Secretary on the board of Youth Evangelism Association.
Together Tom and Linda coordinate the Teen Missions base in Cameroon, Africa. It was here that Tom was made a prince of the tribe of Nswonga. They travel to Cameroon twice a year and in the summer to help run the annual Boot Camp and other projects. Tom & Linda also serve on the governing board of Teen Missions.
