Children of the Promise was introduced to Evan at a very young age through his parents involvement in the ministry. He spent a lot of time reading newsletters and keeping up with everything that was happening at Children of the Promise. Evan was able to go on his first mission trip to Haiti in 2011 with a team from Willmar, MN. Ever since experiencing COTP and Haiti, Evan has been involved with the ministry in many different capacities. He was able to continue visiting Haiti and his parents also adopted two daughters from COTP. All of these experiences have allowed Evan to continue to gain a better understanding of Haiti and the work of COTP. Evan and his wife, Laura, currently live in Prinsburg, MN and Evan works in Donor Engagement at COTP.
