After years of living in Russia and helping friends who lead non-profit organizations, Don is managing Leading Edge International. He gets to do what he really cares about: seeing local leaders for the sake of Christ leverage all available resources to creatively solve mutual problems with their neighbors.
With four women in his life every day is an adventure! Two of Don’s three girls are in college – Purdue & Univ of Western Ontario. His eldest is an Emmy winning television news producer, now beginning her first on air reporting job.
Fathering is a wild and rewarding ride. After 21 years living in a “Helmer household” daily choices sometimes create beauty , sometimes despair. Fantastic grace that his dream girl consented to marry him and then hang on long enough to see her opus now playing on a world stage!
