Travis is the Chairman of the Board of Governors for Christ School Bundibugyo and works alongside Ugandan staff in the medical clinic as well as helping with local public health projects. Amy spends her days raising their three children and supporting the team through planning, coordination, and hospitality. They desire to see this current generation of both Westerners and Ugandans discipled in the knowledge and grace of God and to see Bundibugyo as a launching place for future missional work in Africa.
