Both Bill and Lisa grew up in Indiana professing to be Christians, but neither on knew nor loved Jesus Christ. Lisa, at age 43 joined her first Bible study and was saved. Bill shortly after began reading the Bible and was saved at age 46.
Bill, at the time of his salvation, was a founding partner in an engineering firm in Fort Wayne. After learning about foreign missions, God began redirecting the Sheets. Bill started going on missions trips which fueled His desire to peruse missions full time. Bill enrolled at Grace Seminary and obtained a masters degree in Cross Cultural Studies. One of the ministries Bill served in at Wallen Church was an outreach to the men at the Fort Wayne Rescue mission. He also held weekly Bible studies at his office as well as participating in various other Bible studies with Lisa.
Lisa, hosted many home Bible Studies, led a Bible study at Byron Health Center and taught and served at Wallen Baptist Church. Later, in preparation for the mission field Lisa took core Bible, theology and hermeneutic classes.
On March 3, 2014, after selling their business and belongings, Bill and Lisa were sent by Wallen Baptist Church to serve in Thailand. The Sheets have spent the last 2.5 years learning Thai, helping with a new church plant, college outreach, discipling, and mentoring new Christians and helping in outreach through a Thai Baptist Church.
