Trained and experienced in aquaculture, Peter is intent on applying those skills and knowledge in poverty alleviation. He travelled to Congo and Mozambique in 2008 and this fueled his desire to help. He is still stirred by memories of those visits, the people that he met, and the work we could do.

Peter headed to Congo again in 2012 with Sheldon Gilmer and when he returned home, he knew exactly what to do. Working with local Congolese leadership, Fish for Hope, an aqua-cultural training program, was born.

"So here I am, embarked on an exciting journey of what I perceive to be God's design for my life. Some people may be asking the 'why' question. I simply feel compelled. I can't explain it other than I am passionate about aquaculture and about living a life pleasing to God."
