About Us

Robert came to Christ in the seventies through the Jesus Movement. He eventually became the pastor of a group of young Jesus People. There he met Lois who grew up in a Christian home and became a Licensed Practical Nurse. They were married in 1976.

In 1984 Robert and Lois joined a team of missionaries working in Uganda with World Harvest Mission. The Carrs served there from 1985-1991 doing church planting.

In 1997 the Carrs began serving in Kenya training African church planters in the Africa Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Churches are being planted among Africans (as well as various unreached Indians) both in the capital of Nairobi and rural areas of the country. Lois helps disciple ladies in the Indian church and uses her nursing skills to help with the medical needs of children in the slums.

Robert leads a team that includes two other families, George and Martha Mixon and Guy and Susan Rainsford. Robert also serves as the East Africa Director for WHM.

Robert and Lois have four children, Rebekah (2-1-78), Jessica (6-18-81), and Stephen (6-16-86) who are now living in the U.S., and Andrew (12-7-93) who is still living with them in Nairobi.

Robert has an M.Div. degree from Westminster Theological Seminary and recently received his D.Min. from Columbia International University.
