In July, 1974, John and Marjorie were approved as World Baptist Fellowship missionaries to Indonesia. In March 2001 they moved from the island of Java to the island of Bali because the churches they had established in Java had become indigenous. They believed God was leading them to establish an Independent Baptist Church as well as a Bible Institute on the Hindu island of Bali which is one of the many thousands of islands that make up the country of Indonesia.
John was led to the Lord by his mom when he was seventeen years old. Marjorie was saved at First Baptist Church of Traverse City, Michigan in 1947.
