Country Home

Welcome friends, relatives and fellow World Wide Web surfers. Welcome to our Iowa home. It is located about 3 miles SouthWest of Grand River in south central Iowa. About a 20 minute drive to the west of our home is the town of Leon, Decatur County seat.
You will find multiple grains grown in this area including soybeans, corn, sorghum and even some wheat. Try some sweet Iowa corn picked right off the stalk and fresh strawberries grown in your own garden. You definitely won't go hungry.

Neil had a great time on his Alaskan Dall Sheep Hunt August of 97. Three years later he took a beautiful Alaskan caribou in the same area. Neil does his own taxidermy work. Check out the State of Iowa DNR hunting information site. All the carpentry and handyman projects around our home are done by Neil. In fact he is also a life member of the Handyman Club of American. Seems like Neil can build or repair almost anything.

We met through Alaska Men Magazine. Neil was living in Anchorage, Alaska and Susan was living in Kailua-Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. He was looking for a Christian woman to share his life with and for the last 10 years we have been loving our Lord Jesus together.
Trinity Christian Church is where we currently attend services.
We like to give of our time and talents to those less fortunate, especially on team trips to poorer countries. To share the Peace of God is a joy. We enjoy traveling and experiencing God's beautiful creation. One of our dream vacations is to spend one to two weeks on Bora Bora.
