We are both recovering alcoholics.
Martin has been sober 24 years!
Fran has been sober 9 years!
We are Biblical Counselors and
12 Step Recovery Leaders.
We first came to the White Mountain Apache Reservation in May of 2017 on a mission trip with Blue Springs Christian Church. During that trip God spoke to our hearts concerning the hopelessness we saw in the Apache people. Learning that the biggest reasons for the hopelessness is alcohol and drug addiction; we immediately knew God was calling us and White Mountain Apache Ministries was born.
We went back to Missouri; sold our home and arrived in Arizona in October of 2017 to begin our ministry.
