Greetings!

Post by d3sl91 » October 25th, 2018, 4:02 am

Hello All,


Name here is Ethan. My wife and I are currently in Madagascar serving with a Missions organization for ~1 year (Teen Missions International). However, we are now coming up on our departure date, and will be back in the states (Florida) November 5th.

Our home is Portland, OR - and we plan to be back there in December.

Before getting married, I was a semi-avid gamer. I was founder and part of a few different gaming communities, all 100 or less folks. One was a christian-only community, which disbanded after a few years, and the latest was just a more family-friendly community for mostly local (Pacific northwest) folks. We had several LAN parties, and met up in person as often as possible - it was more about the friendships than the games at times.

However, leading up to and getting married took much more of my time (as it should), so I have been more of a casual every other weekend and xbox games on a couch kinda guy since then. We were preparing for this year in Madagascar, so, a lot of our time and energy was getting ready for this.

Now that we are headed back, I do wish to game a little more often to help balance out the work/play aspect of my life (get too wrapped up in the work I'm doing and get too drained from it at times). I've been a follower on facebook for awhile, so I see CC posts often - but never really joined the community.

I am primarily a PC gamer, and mostly played teamwork-based FPS games. Lots of Battlefield!



Non gaming stuff:
My wife and I do wedding photography on the side.
One of my main hobbies is Ham Radio.
I'm an absolute geek, and love anything to do with Tech.
Education was a degree for IT.
Previously I was an E-Learning consultant - working with a company making online curriculum for schools, and will likely be in the same or similar field in the future.... or maybe a low voltage installer....or who knows what God has planned.

Looking forward to being part of the community!

Welcome to the forums!!! Glad you joined us here, too. Discord, when y'all get back to the states, is a great way to get to know folks here. There are bible studies online, prayer nights, Overwatch Night, Ark, Rocket League, probably some Pubg somewhere and GW2 holds a few of us hostage still. :D

Hello and welcome! I remember getting a HAM license a long long time ago. Only ever got a small hand held and used it with our local repeater.

Hope to see you around when I can, I have my time taken up by a little one and squeak what time I can with my online friends here. At the moment I'm playing console and mobile games.
