James was introduced to Reach Out Honduras in 2014 when he, along with his son and father, participated in a short term mission trip with a team from Riverside Church of Christ. James was drawn in by the way he saw the Lord at work through the Waits, the school, and the students to spread His love throughout the region. He has been back each summer since bringing family and friends along. James, who is a CPA, joined the Board of ROH in early 2017 in the role as Treasurer. James and his wife Ellen live in Flower Mound, TX along with their son and two daughters and are members of Riverside Church of Christ in Coppell, TX.
