After growing up and going to school in nearby Abbotsford, Mark embraced the opportunity to travel and was privileged to visit more than forty countries around the world. He went to university in Hawaii and then returned to Canada to do graduate studies, at which time he also met his wife. In 2005, the Klassen family of five moved to New Delhi, India.
