They joined the Unevangelized Fields Mission (UFM) in 1964, acting as missionaries throughout France. They returned to Winona Lake in 1981 to serve as Midwest representatives of UFM, and Jim as director of the Modern Language Program at Grace College. They were called back to Bala Cynwyd, Pa., to direct UFM from 1991 to 2001. In 2001, they returned to Winona Lake.
