Who are we?

Rosann Alexander, owner and managing director of World Missions Travel, has been involved in mission, humanitarian and educational travel for 30 years.  Rosann has been married to Herman for 53 years.  The Alexanders enjoy their three children, their spouses, eight grandchildren and one grand son-in-law.  For the past 14 years a young lady named Emily Legg has been a special part of their lives.  The Alexanders have been in missions in many parts of the world.  During the nine years in Australia, Rosann realized that to be a good steward of the money that was given to missionaries for travel, there must be a way to get better fares and conditions for this particular niche in society.  Rosann became involved with Overseas Express, a travel company based in Chicago.  Owners Joe Silliman and Chris Tingle offered the most contracts with International Airlines that provided special fares and conditions for mission travelers.

Steve Taliaferro is a former educator with a passion for missions and ministry to youth.  He has worked with youth camps and orphan ministries in the USA, Ukraine, Bosnia and Croatia.  He lived in Donetsk, Ukraine for a few years while he worked with a ministry to children living in state-run orphanages.  Steve now lives in Zagreb, Croatia, where he works with the Zagreb Institute for Biblical Studies, as well as with ministries to children and youth with a local church.  Steve is a planner and organizer who likes working with maps, calendars and spreadsheets, in the context of ministering to people.  He also enjoys assisting other missionaries with their air travel arrangements.

Andrew Kelly is passionate about two things:  ministry and travel.  Born in Australia, immigrated to America with his family as a child.   Andrew has traveled since he was young.  At the age of 16, he began going to Ukraine to work among the orphans teaching Bible lessons in summer camps.  After graduating from Abilene Christian University, Andrew moved to Ukraine where he opened a transitional living center (TLC) for orphanage graduates.  Since 2004, Andrew's ministry has grown from just the one TLC to almost a year round camp facility and outreach to several orphanages.  Andrew loves to tell children of God's amazing love for them.  Living in Ukraine, Andrew travels frequently to the US and Australia to visit family and raise support.  For nearly 16 years Andrew has been associated with World Missions Travel.  His love for travel has taken him to over 20 countries on 5 continents.  Andrew has been married to his wife, Jenny, since 2007.  They have two young daughters, Abigail Grace and Hannah Sophia.

Joe Silliman has worked with those who serve for over 25 years.  He founded Overseas Express, a travel company devoted to assisting missionaries, churches, religious orders, relief workers, humanitarian organizations and NGO's with their travel requirements. In 2007 the company was sold to a company based in the Netherlands.  Joe is retired in Sarasota, Florida, but continues to help those who serve.  He is active with local humanitarian organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Van Wezel Foundation.
