Meredith and Sandy Elder
Meredith and Sandy were both raised in Virginia, and came to Christ in their teenage years. They met during their college years, when Meredith was attending the University of Virginia and Sandy James Madison University.
After college Meredith worked as an accountant until 1985, when he went overseas as a Bible smuggler to communist Eastern Europe. Sandy was in social work in northern Virginia, until 1984, when she started studying counseling at Westminster Seminary. After seminary, she worked for the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation.
At the very end of 1989, Meredith left Europe and moved to Pennsylvania to court Sandy. They were married in September 1990, after knowing each other a mere 15 years. In late 1990, Meredith began working in accounting for World Harvest Mission.
In 1996, they left World Harvest and moved to Hungary to help oversee missionary teams with another agency, moving to Austria in 1997. In 1999, they rejoined World Harvest Mission, doing the Sonship course with folk in central Europe.
They returned to the US in 2002, and Meredith now directs the Member Care ministry, seeking to provide the resources and care our personnel need to work overseas. Both Sandy and Meredith continue to work with the Sonship course in the US and overseas.
Meredith & Sandy have two kids; both Joshua and Emily are studying at the University of Virginia.
