Uncle Dave and Aunt Evie

September 23, 2013  •  8 Comments

Check out this couple! 

I have known them for about 7 years. They have given their lives to serving God and loving the people he brings into their life. They have relied on God to provide their needs. Through ups and downs, trials of life, and blessings from God, they have been faithful to each other and to their Savior Jesus Christ! Through the years I have learned so much from these two. They have adopted me into their family, have prayed for me, and given me advice in life! We have shared tons of laughter, frustrations, campfires, MASH Marathons, dinner, vacations, discussions on Bible verses, and SO much more. 

Uncle Dave and Aunt Evie - as they are known as by many - have given most of their life to reaching and ministering to Inner City Children. They have touched hundreds of counselors and campers lives through 20+ years of ministry! 

They have a houseful and handful of kids of their own who constantly keep them on their toes. If you are reading this and have a great story of these two please leave your comment for them below and tell us about your story! - If you can :-) 

Thank you for all you do Uncle Dave and Aunt Evie! Love you guys! It has been a blessing to know you both and serve along side you! 

Your Adopted Daughter, 

Rose

Streamside is fortunate to have Dave Brown as our head counselor and maintenance director. He is passionate about reaching children and teens from urban environments and goes above and beyond to try provide a full week of camp for even the most challenging campers. He is eager to disciple those he works with in maintenance. Dave and Evie have opened their home for many of our summer staff to have family time away from home.

Uncle Dave and Aunt Evie watched me grow up. They live in the house I grew up in. I was a particularly "trying" and "frustrating" child, and I like to think that I was good practice for them when they babysat me and the rest of my siblings. I've known them since I was born. They've always been so encouraging and I ALWAYS have to stop in and see them whenever I'm in the country. Uncle Dave and I were always buddies, and we always used to fight! And I was angry or mad or wanted to pick a fight, he would fight with me and then always win by tickling me until I couldn't breathe!! I love their kids too, I have babysat them on a few occasions and I identified with younger hyperactive Oliva! ...I don't know about her, but I STILL can't sit still and now I'm 22! Geez, how time flies huh? Anyways, these two are an INCREDIBLE couple of people, and second parents to me. Uncle Dave and Aunt Evie, if you're reading this, I love you guys very much and I can't wait to see you again. Love, Lauren

I remember walking up the mountain at camp with Uncle Dave, the first time I'd ever done it... he was so encouraging and it really meant a lot and I still tell the story of how I managed to make it up the mountain thanks to Uncle Dave... It's not a story about them as a couple, but it's still pretty cool... and Aunt Evie is a wonderful, godly woman and is an inspiration to many... (and she makes awesome iced tea!)

I guess I wasn't around long enough to be adopted too, but I could wish that I was. Dave and Evie are an inspiration to me because they just live simple Gospel-centered lives. I say simple because Dave always helped me to stop analyzing things that just aren't as complicated as I try to make them. You helped me realize I don't need to figure out what's wrong with the world to do what's right. I pray that I can be half the husband and father that you are someday, all the glory is the Lord's, but for your work you have my thanks and my deepest respect. Miss you all...
