“I love spending time outdoors taking walks, hiking, going on picnics, kayaking, and gardening. I also enjoy reading, music, and crocheting. Most of all, I am passionate about teaching children. As a child I was fascinated and inspired by stories of missionaries who cared for children, such as Amy Carmichael, George Mueller, and Gladys Aylward. Somehow I knew that one day I would also be a missionary to children.

Over the years, God has impressed on me the needs children have right here in my own country. I felt clueless as to how to reach out to them before coming to In The Gap. I went through four levels of In The Gap to gain practical skills that would allow me to effectively minister to young people. During my time as an intern, my dream was that, at the end, I would return home to start a Bible Club. God blessed that dream and to my complete astonishment, within four months of returning home He had the Bible Club up and running!

Now God has led me back to In The Gap where I have the opportunity to continue reaching out to the children that God has placed on my heart. I am also able to coordinate Bible Clubs and several other children’s programs. These programs give others the opportunity to gain experience in teaching and sharing God’s love and truth with children.”
