We are missionaries with SonSet Solutions (formerly HCJB Global Technology Center) in Elkhart, Indiana. We have lived in Elkhart since 1986, where Dan helps to design, build, and support equipment for international Christian radio and media partners.
Dan is an electrical engineer who has been a missionary with Reach Beyond (formerly HCJB Global) and SonSet Solutions since 1977. Barb served with ABWE in Sao Paulo, Brazil before she moved to Quito, Ecuador to serve with the Christian and Missionary Alliance as the library media specialist for the Alliance Academy, a school for missionary children. We met in Quito where Dan worked for six years building a radio automation system for missionary Radio Station HCJB.
We were one of the first missionary couples to arrive at the HCJB Global Technology Center in 1986 where Dan designed and built the computer control system for the HC100 high-power shortwave radio transmitters. He now maintains and periodically upgrades the office computer network servers and infrastructure for SonSet Solutions, although he considers himself more of an engineer than an IT guy. Dan’s greatest satisfaction comes from working on projects for partners to aid them in using technology to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.
