Jake and Taneille were married in July 2006, and started working toward their goal of obtaining the “American Dream.” Taneille graduated from St. Elizabeth School of Nursing/St Joseph’s College with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2007. Jake received his paramedic license through IUPUI/Wishard Memorial Hospital in 2006. He currently attends Johnson University, studying ministry and leadership online. After the birth of their third child in September 2010, God placed a desire in their hearts to love and serve unreached people in Africa. He steadily continued to reveal His desire, more specifically, for them to serve in Ethiopia. They now realize the American Dream they were searching for was only an empty hole that could only be filled with Christ’s love and compassion. They have 5 children – Aubrey (2007), Logan (2009), Alivia (2010), Lydon (2013) and Ayla (2015).
