the short version

We generally like to be more “Look at Jesus” than “Look at us,” but since we recently have had more people liking our Facebook page and following our missionary journey, I thought I would share a little bit about us. 

Captain Anderson:
Todd was born in Portland, OR some years ago. After that, his family lived in Pensilvania, Ohio, and back to Oregon, where the folks still live. The baby of 3 children,  he was baptized as a young teen. Todd is quiet, mechanical, and thoughtful. He has a BS degree from Walla Walla College in Aviation Management. 

Mama Cas:
I am from Walla Walla, WA. I became a Christian in 2002 and have always considered that the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I have a BS degree from WWC in mass communications. (And since it’s weird talking about myself you can just read more about me here). 

Todd and I began our missionary service in 2004, a year after we were united in marriage, in The Philippines. After a year there, we knew that was what we wanted to dedicate our lives to. We went to Tacoma, WA where I got an AS and an AB and Todd got his AS (when he became an aircraft mechanic). After 2 years in Tacoma, I went to Africa for 2 1/2 months and fell even more in love with living for Jesus in foreign lands. We returned to Walla Walla to finish our degrees and spent the summer of 2008 in the Republic of Kiribati, where we planned on returning for long-term service. We graduated from WWC in 2009 and Amelia was born a few weeks later. As it became more apparent that it would not work out to return to Kiribati, we began to pray about where God would send us next. Samuel was born in 2011and after a year and a half of prayer, our family moved to Guyana (January 2013). Since then we’ve been on the ride of a lifetime living in Guyana and serving God with 2 barefoot kiddos. It’s not always fun, and it’s rarely easy, but we feel like this is the life God has called us to and we wouldn’t trade it for anything.
