This call has included making their home in three countries on three continents in the last fourteen years: America, India, and Rwanda. Included in their global call, Ben and Susie have had the joy of parenting Simon, Talya, Charlie, and Annie. These four kids were made on three continents. The opportunity to raise a global family in a global world with a loving wife that asks deep questions about culture and identity has given Ben an appreciation for why differences are important.

Currently, while serving with CRU, they have the joy of leading the Kigali International Community School (KICS) in Kigali, Rwanda. KICS is home to over 37 nationalities, and Ben and Susie are cherishing this opportunity to serve globally while preparing servant leaders to impact the world for Christ. (As director, Ben serves as a non-voting member of the KICS board.)
