When I was a little girl, the LORD impressed me with the importance of living beyond the familiar by introducing me to global ministries. As a teen, at the moment I understood and accepted what was provided for me through Christ, I said yes to His call and began preparing for full-time service. My husband and I have worked as career global workers in Brazil for nearly 40 years with Baptist Mid Missions participating in the start and development of more than seven national churches and an island camp for youth. Recently, I was privileged to complete my Master’s in Human Services Counseling. I went on to acquire certification as a Life Purpose Coach to women and teen girls in both English and Portuguese. In the next year, I plan to add motivational speaking from the coaching perspective to my résumé. God is working miracles in lives through this new venture, which I implement via Internet or in person.
My heart’s desire is to demonstrate through my life experience and God’s Word that women and girls have choices that may or may not be dictated by their birth cultures. Please pray for me as I walk alongside to help them develop every area of their lives gaining strength and courage through God-honoring relationships. I depend on Holy Spirit guidance and power to fulfill my purpose as a Christian woman of integrity in every opportunity. This means that I must trust God with my disappointments, passions, fears, longings, and weaknesses. As I do, He turns them into strengths to be used for His glory in the lives of others.
