Carlan met the Cropseys a long time ago, through a series of vague family connections.
Then Carlan came to Michigan for med school, and ended up at Knox Church.
He met the McLaughlins and ended up disassembling an ancient window frame in their house, and having lots of late night conversations about Francis Schaeffer.
He met the Faders, and is currently longing to learn motorcycle mechanics from Jason.
He came and visited Tenwek, we were glad to have him there.
He returned to California, where he lives in a crazy developing country called "LA County".
He will be finishing in 2012, and then plans to join his friends in Africa.
