In 1998, Jacob was born. He is a wonderful, imaginative and very smart young man – a teenager, Wow! He is now enjoying his studies at a high school for exceptionally talented young people. He is very active in his local Boy Scout troop along with Jonathan – they enjoy the camping and outings together.

He studied E-Commerce/Business Operations at Regis Univeristy, Denver, Colorado. Brenda enjoys working full-time at home, taking care of the kids.

In May 2004 Jonathan crossed the stage to graduate with his Master’s Degree in Computer Information Technology from Regis University in Denver, Colorado . It was a beautiful setting and an unforgettable moment. We are very proud of Jon and his accomplishments, but most of all for his love for the Lord, his tender heart in leading his family and serving others.
The grandkids continue to delight us. They are so well-behaved and respectful and love the Lord very much. Jon & Brenda have done a wonderful job raising them!
