Dale and Debbie were, and still are, childhood sweethearts. After being married four years (plus two children), they gave their lives to Christ. Two years after that they felt God leading them into full-time service, so they packed up and headed for Alaska. After one year there, they moved back to Michigan so Dale could attend Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music in their Missionary Aviation program. In 1981 they moved to Bonnyville, Alberta to begin a four-year church-planting ministry with North American Indians. The next five years saw them in Calgary working with an emerging Native church. In 1990 they were engaged in East Indian ministry in Calgary and in 1997 they moved to India to work alongside an indigenous missionary organization. From 2000-2003 Dale served as InterAct’s mobilization director. They have two married children and four granddaughters. The Kenyons are on loan to SIM, assigned to serve in Bolivia, South America.
