Bob and Shirley Friedl
Bob and Shirley Friedl both accepted Jesus as their Savior when they were children. As adults they desired to teach children the love of Jesus. So Bob left the commercial art field in Chicago and moved his family to Michigan in 1972 to become a part of a children’s ministry. For eight years they trained under the leadership of RBM ministries before starting their own unique ministry of chalk artistry and puppetry called God's Helping Hands.
What started as a ministry to children has now expanded to reach children of all ages. With Bob’s artistic ability and Shirley’s storytelling they make a good team. Bob and Shirley have presented the Gospel at churches, Schools, nursing homes and other ministries.
Bob is the president of GHH and works in the office designing and making puppets. Shirley is in charge of the discipleship club and enjoys communicating with her 70+ students.
