The Camerons met and fell in love as college students serving in the mission field of Bolivia. Their shared love of ministry and volunteerism is evident in the activities they pursue both individually and as a couple. They are volunteers for a camp serving children in foster care and active participants of their local Foursquare church. Additionally, Sonya volunteers as a clinical advisor and consultant to a start-up organization doing women’s prison and aftercare ministry.
Together, the Camerons are the founders of The True Foundation, an organization serving in the United States and Canada that works with community and health organizations as health educators and partners with churches from several denominations and non-profit companies to fill the role of para-church ministry. The True Foundation educates and trains individuals, churches and organizations to integrate key elements of Christianity with health care expertise. The Camerons’s first book, THE REST OF HEALTH, is a work of creative non-fiction based on the core principles of The True Foundation.
The Camerons currently live in the Tacoma area with their two young children. They enjoy outdoor activities... when it’s not raining.
