About me

Industry Agriculture
Occupation Missionaries, Farm Manager, Teacher
Location "the bush" :), Uganda
Introduction Once upon a time a boy and a girl met at a beautiful ranch in Estes Park, Colorado. They talked about many things, but often it was about Africa: one had been, and the other was going. Now, 7 years and three children later, they call Uganda "home." Shawn manages a farm that helps feed several hundred orphaned children and helps to promote sustainable agricultural practices. Courtney manages the home and teaches Literature part-time in the secondary school. Together we join the rest of our community and help parent the children in our midst.
Interests Shawn: guitar/music/creativity, sustainability (agriculture), learning, my wonderful family, current events (not in that order). Courtney: books, nourishing foods, nature, photography, writing, Waldorf, my family (also not in that order). And we are both passionate about adoption!
Favorite Music Jon Foreman, The Fray, One Republic, Jars of Clay, Mercy Me, George Winston, Civil Wars, A Fine Frenzy, Brooke Fraser
Favorite Books As a Literature major, this is too complex of a question for such a little box. (Courtney)
