Dr. Latter likes hunting and fishing. He enjoys both playing and coaching basketball (his 6’7″ frame comes in handy on the court). He and his family also enjoy most outdoor activities including hiking, tent camping, golf and disc golf. His wife and he are often seen running and he has competed in 5 and 10 km races and has completed half and full marathons.
Dr. Latter thanks God for the doors that were opened that allowed he and his family to come to this beautiful area. In particular Wes and Laura Rashid have been incredibly helpful. Dr. Latter’s sister and brother in law Janet and Kevin, as well as their kids, Jake and Torey, have played a large role in the relocation. And finally Pastor Frank and the wonderful people at the Family Life Christian Church have been awesome.
