Expressions of Love
We thank you all so much for the many beautiful flowers, gifts, and expressions of support we have received so far. We would be honored if all such expressions of love be sent to Cleft Palate Away, a non-profit organization put together by a close family member. 100% of the funds go towards cleft palate surgeries for the poorest of the poor in Vietnam. We think it fitting that through this situation Mark Allen might provide a new lease on life to other children through a new smile.
We met at Point Loma Nazarene University and were married in 2006 after graduation. We have a dog, Hudson, who is a great companion and source of entertainment. Jess works as a nurse on the orthopedic-rehab floor at Rady's Childrens Hospital San Diego and Rob works as a commercial real estate broker at Colliers International.
"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us" Romans 5:3-5
