You could say that we are just your average every-day family of 9 representing a couple of states and 3 countries – with a love for each other and a passion to serve God. Plus we love sports, the Broncos, mountains and Arsenal (depending on who you ask!).
Ok – maybe not exactly ordinary…
The Spangler’s are Duane and Sarah (Dad – Mom), Melissa (20 years old and a huge heart for kids), James (14 years old, a great young man in the making, and part of our family through adoption from Guatemala) – and our 3 Ugandan sons – Gavin (11 years old and a very determined, creative type), Ben (11 years old and focused on everything sports – particularly basketball) and Max (10 years old and is our musical, artistic and “reading machine”). Our family also includes Megan (married and the first to leave the nest) and Bekah (currently finishing college and studying Teaching English as a Second Language).
We are currently preparing to serve at Amani Baby Cottage in Jinja, Uganda – and will be serving as Home Administrators in the daily care of as many as 60 children. Amani is an amazing ministry – in place for over 15 years caring for Uganda’s orphans and children in need, providing love and care and making a profound difference in Uganda’s next generation!
Challenged to live an extraordinary ordinary life caring for His kids!
