Since 2004, the couple had distributed Bibles as “unassociated missionaries” on their boat. According to their blog, the couple sailed more than 60,000 miles and distributed Bibles in Central America, French Polynesia, the Cooks, Samoa, and Tonga.
Here’s more from the couple’s blog: “Scott & I feel that we can do more as ‘unassociated missionaries.’ (Our only association is that of fiscal oversight by the Quest Mission Church in Bakersfield.) This allows us to follow the Spirit as we search for “homes” for our Bibles. We hope to be a blessing to those who receive these Bibles. This year (2007) we shipped 17 cases of Bibles to the Quest in New Zealand for our mission (about 500 Bibles). We had hoped to send more, but the shipping costs were oppressive. Because Catholics have a slightly different Bible than Protestants we carry both Bibles, and at several different reading levels.”
