I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. -Romans 12:1

I will be working in Indonesia bringing hope to underpriveledged women by training them in a life skill that they can use to support themselves and their families. I will work through a local community development organization which has a sewing school and, eventually, just by sharing my daily life with them.

Through this school I hope to develop relationships with the women that will allow me to love these women and offer them hope for a better future.

Ways to Pray:

~That He would give me wisdom in dealing with a very unfamiliar culture
~That I would continue to grow spiritually and keep my focus on Jesus
~That He would open the hearts of the women that I will encounter and that He will open my heart to them
~That God will provide the prayer and financial support team that I need around me. I know that God will provide all that I need, when I need it.  Pray that I step out in faith to do my part

Testimony

On October 25, 2010, I gave my life over to Jesus Christ and I have been on His adventure ever since! Soon after that, I remember telling God that I would do anything for Him; I would even ‘go to the mission field.’ But as I read and studied the Bible I realized that it wasn’t something to which God sent just special people; but that all were commanded to “go and make disciples.” It was just His timing on which I had to wait.  In August 2013, I finally received that unmistakable nudge from God saying, “Now is the time.”  In the last couple of years, I have been actively studying the Bible and learning all I can about what it takes to follow Him. 

Background

I graduated from Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in History.  I have spent most of my working years in office administration in various industries.
