After serving in Nigeria for 21 years, Bob & Gayle were asked by SIM to return to the US to assume the role of Midwest Regional Directors. SIM is a global mission with missionaries from over 50 countries serving in 65+ countries throughout the world. They visit colleges and universities in the region to encourage students to consider personal involvement in missions. They work with churches to help them achieve greater engagement in missions as well as providing a personal connection with missionaries that are on home assignment or those preparing for first-time ministry overseas. They also work with these missionaries to build them up and encourage them in their personal and professional development.
