After two years of college, Marc Allan volunteered for the draft, and was stationed in West Berlin. Life as a hippie beckoned following his discharge. He became a Christian through the Gospel Outreach ministry in northern California in 1973. He and his wife Linda were missionaries in Germany from 1976 to 1989. The couple has three grown children and live and work in Seattle where Marc is a businessman. Always a traveler, he enjoys road trips, and has visited countries on all five continents. He continues to minister, and his chief joy in life is sharing the Good News.
