Married for more than 40 years, Sam and Vicki know firsthand how prayer changes a marriage. Both involved in full-time ministry early in their marriage, Vicki confronted Sam about the spiritual void in their relationship. Sam was able to admit his past failure as a spiritual leader to his wife, and the couple soon embraced a new pattern of prayer. Their marriage underwent a rich transformation that they desire to share with other couples. Involved in international missions for more than 20 years, the couple considers the greater Dallas area home. There, they can enjoy their three daughters, a son-in-law, and granddaughter Lyla.
