Luke and Alisan met when they were 12 in a United Methodist Church Camp. They had no idea the big plans God had in store for them! Many years later in 2005, they were reunited. They knew at that point that God had planned for them to be together. They were soon married and became parents to three beautiful children.
While living in Lancaster, Pennsylvania Luke worked in construction, and Alisan worked in the mental health field. All was going well until suddenly God interrupted their lives and called them to love and serve children in the slums of Brazil. Although they had no idea what that would look like, they knew they were called to be like a mother and a father to many.
