David Sheats served with the Far East Broadcasting Company mission for six years in the Philippines before moving to West Palm Beach, Florida in 1977 to be part of a local church. He has labored in the gathering since that time, mainly as a teacher. Due to travel opportunities with his job, he has been able to meet and have fellowship with believers in many other countries. Now retired, he continues to write and teach in the local church, and now also on the podcast "Anchor of Truth." Along with other brothers and sisters, he has been able to return to the Philippines several times to encourage believers in local expressions of the body of Christ. He has also visited Kenya several times in recent years. David and his wife Helen have seven children, one of whom has passed on. Four are married, and they have 15 grandchildren.
