Carol and Valen met when the were attending White River High school in Buckley, Washington. They were voted class couple in their Senior year (1972). After graduation, Carol went to Dental Assistant training school and Valen attended Prairie Bible Institute. Carol and Valen were married in 1974, and they returned to Prairie in 1975. While there, they felt God calling them to full-time service. God used many circumstances in their life to eventually lead them to InterAct Ministries in 1987 as missionaries to the First Nation peoples of Canada. They have two children, Amy and David, and three grandchildren, (Ashley, Jacob, and Taylor). They worked 10 years in North Battleford, SK where they discipled Native believers. They worked with other InterAct missionaries to help establish an indigenous church. Upon leaving that area the church was beginning to establish its own leadership and another couple came to work with the church. In 1998 they moved to Kamloops, BC and have worked there since helping start a fellowship of believers.
