Mark originates from British Columbia. After graduating from university he took a trip to India where he came to faith through the ministry of Delhi Bible Fellowship. He later gained his teaching certification with a view to serving overseas.
Catherine is also a native of British Columbia and came to faith as a teenager through the ministry of Pioneer Girls. She is also a teaching professional.
In 1981 the Buhlers headed to Kenya and the Rift Valley Academy. They returned to Canada two years later to complete further studies. In 1990 they returned to Kenya where they taught at Rift Valley until 2003. Besides teaching the Buhlers were very involved in community projects such as school feeding programs, reforestation, ministry to AIDs orphans, administration, student outreach trips to villages, jails etc. and as dorm parents at the school.
The Buhlers relationship with our Fellowship churches, particularly in the west, brought them to Fellowship International. They are currently back in Kijabe, Kenya at the Rift Valley Academy carrying on the work that they have done with great passion in the past.
