I grew up in Brazil, where my parents, George and Maxine  Wells, were missionaries.  I trusted Christ as my Savior at  the age of 7.    My parents kept us involved in their ministry, even as  children and young people. Through these opportunities to  Serve the Lord, God convicted me of His desire that I serve  him vocationally. When I was 13 years old, I surrendered  my life to serve the Lord wherever He should lead.  In August of 1987, I enrolled at Piedmont Bible College  (now Piedmont Baptist College) for my Biblical training.  In  1992 I graduated with a Bachelor of Theology degree. I  also began my graduate training at PBC working towards a  Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies. While at PBC, the Lord brought Donna and me together to  serve Him together. On June 21, 1992 we were married.
