Kylee Randle is LOAF Ministries' secretary and treasurer. Because she also acts as our agent in the US, she is often referred to as the "everything stateside person." Kylee graduated from North Montgomery High School in 2014 and is currently attending Ivy Tech Community College, where she is pursuing a degree in Business Administration & Accounting. She is a close friend who desired to be a big part of this ministry we were building from the early stages. We cannot thank her enough for all the hard work she's put in this far and how much more she'll do in the years to come.

In December for 2015, he earned a certificate in school administration. Donnie teaches at Covenant Christian High School in Indianapolis, IN. We're thankful that he agreed to help guide us in this endeavor, as he has the best "can do" attitude of anyone we know.
Kevin is from Crawfordsville, IN, and has been married to his wife Sammi for 16 years. They have a son, Blake, who is 15 years old. Kevin has spent 15 years working at Pace Dairy and is a Maintenance Supervisor there. He has earned certifications in Industrial Maintenance Technology and PLC Programming. Katye had the pleasure of serving with Kevin on her first trip to Haiti. They worked hard, but they never missed an opportunity to show the love of Christ to those surrounding them. He loves to impart some of his knowledge to the people he is serving alongside, as he wants them to be better equipped to handle practical everyday issues without outside help in the future. We are glad to have Kevin on our team.

He is definitely one of the wisest men that I have ever met, and I am beyond thankful to know him. We are incredibly grateful that he is able to continue this advisory role as a member of our board.
