David & Rachel Kerney

David and Rachel have been missionaries with WGM to Bolivia. David and Rachel have completed their 2-year term in Bolivia and are looking to start a year of homeland ministry in the US.  This summer, both David and Rachel arrived in Texas to be with David’s ailing parents in their last few weeks battling cancer.  Both of David’s parents did go on to be with Jesus this summer.
