Matt Borst

Matt Borst

Matt tries his hardest to keep up with his 5 kids, ages 14 to 24. Outside of his kids’ activities, you might find him going on a walk through his neighborhood, traveling to get away from the busyness of life for a few days, trying a new restaurant he has never eaten at before, or traveling to Iowa to spend time with his family.

The following quote from Karyn Purvis sums up what Matt is giving his life to; “Tell your children, ‘you are precious, you are valuable, and nobody else is created like you.’”

Anthony Troyer, LSW

Anthony is a therapist, but he started his career as a Spanish teacher. He loves cross-cultural experiences, and wants to visit every Spanish speaking country. So far, he has 2 checked off the list. It was travel that first brought Anthony and his wife, Lauren, together as they were preparing for overseas mission work 11 years ago.

Anthony and his wife were foster parents for five years.  They have three kiddos (ages 5-12) a dog, cats, and chickens. Caring for kids from hard places has taught Anthony that what people truly need, be they young or old, is to feel seen, heard, and valued. That foundation of connection makes anything possible.
