Bethlehem Bible College.  He has led mission work in Gaza and with Syrian refugees through The Shepherd Society.

Brenda taught English and was an administrator at Bethlehem Bible College.  She also facilitated United Methodist group visits.  Newly retired, they are itinerating this fall in annual conferences across the US.
