We praise God for each of the five children that He has given to us. With our youngest two attending Faith Baptist Bible College this year, we are new empty-nesters.
Ronnie & Olivia Hemsworth
Our oldest son Ronnie and his wife Olivia live in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Ronnie is the Associate Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church. Olivia works as a vet tech. Their first child was born on October 5, 2018 which made us grandparents. Ronnie enjoys hunting, fishing, carpentry, and the outdoors in general.
Our middle son lives in Ankeny, Iowa and works in an emergency room in West Des Moines as an RN. He recently earned his bachelor's degree in health science. His goal is to attend medical school and become a doctor. He enjoys firearms, hunting, and entertaining people with his sense of humor.
Avery & Elizabeth Snyder
Our oldest daughter Elizabeth and her husband Avery also live in Ankeny, Iowa. Elizabeth works with business accounts at a credit union. Avery is a supervisor at FedEx Freight and is finishing an online business administration degree from Liberty University. Their first two children (twins) are due to arrive late winter!
Our youngest son, Jacob, is also our tallest son at 6' 3". He is twenty years old and attended a community college for two years, taking auto technology. He is now a freshman at Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa. He enjoys mechanics, hunting, guns, and the outdoors.
Our youngest child is Stephanie. She earned enough college credits during high school to enroll as a sophomore at Faith Baptist Bible College. Her major is office administration and she is on the volleyball team. She loves sports, music, and selling things on-line.
