Our names are Dale & Tracy Weaver and we have 4 children. Conner is our oldest child and he enjoys being outdoors, playing sports, and is a hard worker – which is a huge help to us when there are projects to get done. Meckenzie is our second born. She is gifted at drawing, which she loves to do for hours on end. She also has a compassionate heart for animals and dreams of having an animal shelter someday. Keirra is our third child whom adores her big sister and can often be found sitting at the table drawing alongside Meckenzie. Keirra enjoys playing with her Build-A-Bears, playing Memory with her siblings (often winning), and singing and dancing. Cayden, our youngest, is the spittin’ image of his daddy when he was little and is a ball of energy. He loves to follow his older sisters around and asks many deep questions about God, dinosaurs, and anything else his mind can think up. He keeps us on our toes and we enjoy all the sunshine he brings to our family.
Our family feels the call to missions and over the years we’ve enjoyed going on many mission trips together. We’ve spent numerous months working on a YWAM base in Saint Marc, Haiti, and also attended a missionary training school with Iris Ministries in Mozambique, Africa. Dale’s passion over the years has been to empower missionaries through technology – providing them with technical support, and installation and repair of computer systems. Tracy’s dream is to help impoverished women and children by assisting them medically and educating them so they can live a healthier life. Tracy graduated from EMT school and is pursuing becoming a certified midwife.
Even though we knew God was calling us into full time missions sometime in the future, we didn’t know how all the details would come together. In the Summer of 2013, God began to open doors and lead us to pursue working at a YWAM base in Orlando, Florida. After meeting with the base director, we were excited to see how well both of our passions fit with their vision for the Orlando base. Dale will be helping in the base’s technology department with plans to remotely service other mission bases in the future. Tracy plans to continue her midwifery training in Florida and use her education to help women & children in third world countries through short term medical mission trips. Lord willing, our family plans to move to our new home in Clermont, Florida, in June 2014.

Whether local or foreign, we are all called to fulfill Christ’s commission:
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Matt 28:18-20 (NLT)
