Welcome! We are a family ever in need of and amazingly blessed with daily grace! Fred and Ruth met in 1985, were married in 1987, and have had the blessing of 5 children. In 1994, Fred, Ruth, Heidi and Julianna moved to Barmstedt, Germany. Travis, Kassandra and Erik were all born here in northern Germany. Years come, years go, children come, children go, and in the midst of the hours, days, months, years, we would be a mess if it wasn’t for God’s grace. We all have a story to tell . . . .
