Hi! My name is Robin. I am a wife, mother of 2, grandmother of 2, and looking forward to a new grandchild in November. God has led my husband and I on many exciting adventures in our 21 years as cross-cultural workers. Our travels have led us to Moscow, Far East Russia, the Kamchatka peninsula, and the Balkans. Through the years, I have brewed hundreds of gallons of tea, ministered to students, shoveled snow, homeschooled children, taught English in a village of reindeer herders, worked with refugees, and used quilting as an outreach. Currently, my husband supervises several teams ministering in South Europe. I love to spend time with the ladies and families on these teams, praying and encouraging them. I’m planning to start a craft outreach in the fall in our current city.

Please pray that above all, I would be obedient and seek to know Him more. Please pray for wisdom as I speak into the lives of women on our teams. So many are struggling, and facing tremendous challenges. Also, my mother and mother-in-law are both in the middle to late stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Please pray for my husband and I as some hard decisions will need to be made in the near future.
