Meet the Wimpelbergs! Thom, Cara, Riley, Chase and Evelyn and Paige love living in Haiti, and being a part of the Sonlight missionary team.
Thom first visited Port-de-Paix in 2001 and met Cara, who was raised in Haiti and is Sonlight's Kindergarten teacher. Love at first sight? Maybe – it did result in Thom's moving to Haiti and becoming the 6th grade teacher and a Haitian history aficionado. A great joy for the Wimpelbergs is seeing students whom they taught as very young children come to Christ.
Now their own children (Riley, 16; Chase, 11; Evelyn, 7; Paige, 4) are attending Sonlight and they feel that Haiti is a great place to raise a family. Thom and Cara were married in 2004 and like to travel to new parts of Haiti, lead Bible studies for youth and young adults, and count it a privilege to serve God in Port-de-Paix.
