UPS Driver Delivers Something Extra

Jeff Smith

Bob praying with a resident of the Fienne's Institute in Antigua.

Meet Bob Gruner.  He’s a retired UPS deliveryman who loves people.  For years, he helped send others on mission trips, but because of work, he never had the opportunity to go.  His retirement changed all that. In the last three years, Bob has been on six mission trips!

It all started when Jeff Smith invited Bob to join him on a survey trip to Santa Rosa (2013).  It was on that trip that he found a passion for missions.  Bob has become an invaluable asset to DiscipleTrips and he’s everyone’s favorite on the team.  His ability to connect with people, combined with a wealth of life experience and handyman skills always find a place to shine.

Bob has grown in so many ways and loves to serve.  These pictures are sacred reminders of the ministry and power of prayer.   For years, Bob delivered packages--now  he delivers something far more important!  He's an excellent example of the value of our intergenerational approach to short-term missions.
