We are John and Maray Betke.  We have 4 beautiful children.  Our lives were forever changed in 2003 when we both became Christians.  Showing the love of Jesus to the world is our heart.

As a family we have recently spent 8 years serving full time with a nonprofit missions organization.  We understand the bigger picture isn't about material gain, fame nor anything remotely close.  It's about the power of love while taking the time to invest in others.

Our desire is to show the love of God to children with special needs through the SpiritHorse program.

In 2010, we had our third child, Nathanael Charis.  He was born with Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome).  Our hearts are to help and encourage other families with similar special needs experiences.
