Bob & Kerry Stemen
This is the story of a Midwestern boy who grew up in a family that knows God. Saved at a young age, I spent many years questioning whether I was truly saved; not because I had doubts about what one must do to be saved, but because it seemed too easy.
Thankfully, God has a way of working in our lives to let us know we are His children. I grew up, went to college, got married and have three great kids.
My degree is in Mechanical Engineering. My fiancé at the time was in Abilene, TX. She is a graduate of ACU. When she agreed to marry me I was still living In Dayton, OH. The door opened to take a position with a company in Abilene and soon after I became a Texan … at least as much of one as a Yankee can become. Our time In Abilene was typical of a young couple with young kids. There were financial challenges, relationship challenges and the challenges of raising a family. Fortunately, there were no challenges that God had not prepared us to meet and together we grew.
In 2002 I was offered the opportunity to take a position in Pittsburgh, PA starting a division for a company. Unfortunately, the company had a large exposure to Enron and 15 months later, just as the division was really starting to grow, they opted to abandon all new ventures. For the first time in my life I was out of work.
The next day, I was calling customers to explain the situation to them (and ask for a job) when one of them told me that they still needed the product I had been selling and asked me to supply them with It. Two weeks later I was in business. That was June of 2003.
God blessed us, the company grew and we relocated to San Antonio in December of 2005. He has continued to bless us and the employees we have added since then. I am convinced the best Is yet to come.
