Richard was saved in 1977 while working for Continental Airlines in Seattle, WA. A number of Christians witnessed and shared the gospel with him. But it was a message given one day on television through the "700 Club" program with Pat Robertson that resulted in him being born-again. Previous to that time he had been brought up in the Catholic church and later attended and graduated from St. Joseph's High School, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.
A year after being saved, he began attending "Faith Tabernacle" church, Kent, WA, a full-gospel church associated with the "Fellowship of Christian Assemblies" a group similar to the "Assemblies of God" churches, but non-denominational. He later graduated from "Faith Bible Training Center" after 2 years of studying God's Word and doing internship work in their Christian school "Faith Academy". It was there that Pastor Richard Martin taught him a deep love for the Word of God and to preach the Word of God expecting it to produce fruit in people's lives. Shortly later he became one of the elders of New Life Christian Fellowship, Issaquah,WA and shortly later appointed Senior Pastors of New Life Christian Fellowship and pastored there for seven years before going into traveling ministry.
Richard & Joy have been married for 26 years and have three wonderful children, Anna, John and David. Anna presently is married to a wonderful Christian man and both are presently involved in ministry in their local church, John working and traveling, and David is in University. They reside in the beautiful Seattle- Eastside area of the Pacific Northwest and enjoy the beauty and activities available to the area.
They continue to minister the Lord leads them and seek after God and His plan for their lives and trust Him to direct their paths in the future as they seek to love and serve Him and His Body.
