It wasn’t by design that Kent (’03) and Amber (Carroll ’06) Brantly became Abilene Christian University’s best-known alumni couple. In fact, they will be the first to tell you “we are just regular folks seeking the Lord’s will for our lives,” as Amber said in an interview for the new Spring-Summer 2015 issue of ACU Today magazine.
We know countless other students and alumni may consider themselves “regular folks,” while they serve in extraordinary ways as the hands and feet of Jesus throughout the world.
The current issue of ACU Today spotlights several of these, among them: Lesca Hadley, M.D. (’92); Randy (’94) and Anda (Adams ’94) Brown; Taylor Tidmore, M.D. (’99); Kyle Stephens, D.O. (’05 M.Div.); Ray (’80) and Star (Light ’82) Ferguson; David M. Vanderpool, M.D. (’82) and his wife, Laurie (Stallings ’81); David Jr. (’10) and Devin (Anderson ’11) Vanderpool; Shepherd Mbumwae (’95) and his wife, Ruhtt Jaime (’96); and Danny Sims (’85) and his wife Suzanne (Michna ’89).
We’d like to spotlight others.
