Episode Guest Info

Allen Roth

My wife and I (Allen Roth) have been involved in cross-cultural mission work and in church planting since 1978, first in Nicaragua, then in New York City where we have lived since 1986. We are the parents of three children and nine grandchildren scattered across the US and South Asia. It has been a wonderful journey which we consider to have been a great privilege and gift from God.
