Ryan and Krista married in 2008. Ryan worked as a cable technician, and Krista served as an elementary teacher. In their spare, time they both played an active role in the youth group program at their church. A couple years later, they made the courageous decision to move to Cameroon, Africa where they served as missionary houseparents for five years. Ryan and Krista really enjoyed their work in Cameroon and wanted to seek a similar ministry in the States. When they were introduced to Eagle Ranch, they were encouraged by the organization’s philosophy and way of helping children and their families succeed together. In 2022, Ryan and Krista moved from Lancaster, PA to Eagle Ranch to join us as houseparents of the Hope Home.
