Over the years, many American mission teams utilized the camp. However, we did not see the use by Mexican church groups that we had anticipated. It was determined that the facility was perceived to be an American camp, built by Americans, for the Americans! For this reason, the decision was made to turn the day-to-day operations over to Mexican staff. George and Jan moved to the San Antonio area in 2007, where they continue to run the U.S. operations to this day. Since it is only a four hour trip to Reynosa, they go at least once a month to meet with Mexican staff and keep in touch with the various churches with which they work.They have two adult children: Julie, who lives in Texas and is a special education teacher, and Jeff (married to Kathy) who is a pastor at the Well Church in Brighton, Michigan. Julie has two children, Alicen and Isaiah. Jeff and Kathy have 3, David, Meghan and Brandon. In October of 2013, their grandson, David and his wife, Megan, gave them their first great-grandson, Logan!
George’s main hobby is playing golf and teaching multiple bible studies. Jan enjoys shopping and teaching children in various bible studies in the San Antonio area.
