Career missionary since 2018 to the Tai-Kadai of Southeast Asia.

The very word “Missionary” stirred my heart as a child. Listening to Eric B Hare’s stories, and reading accounts by countless other missionaries were life-changing. Very early I decided to be a missionary doctor when I grew up. But life didn’t go as planned, and my dreams of overseas mission service slowly faded. Still a missionary at heart, I viewed my work, wherever it was, as my mission field. As a supporter of front line missionaries, I looked forward to reading about “my missionaries” in each month’s AFM magazine. The day before Thanksgiving 2017, I accepted a call to move from support team member to front line missions. Thank you for partnering with me as I make plans to share Jesus’ love with the Tai-Kadai.

Frontier Stories

Poke Your Head through This Hole

When God gives us a task, He also gives us all we need to get that job done. Always. Even in Southeast Asia, where things often feel overwhelmingly difficult to this new missionary.

“D” Stands for Departure

I fell asleep that night in awe of the Father’s love, care and protection. Knowing my trepidation, God had bracketed my travel with human angels of mercy.

The Silver Lining of Goodbyes

As I prepare to leave America and head to Southeast Asia, there is a mountain of crumpled tissues ahead. But I need not fear. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of treasured memories with special people. Thank you for showing me the silver lining of goodbyes.

The Outstretched Hand

Am I ready? Can I do this? I open my Bible and read, “If I say, ‘My foot slips,’ Your mercy, O Lord, will hold me up.” Accepting His outstretched hand, I stand up and walk forward with confidence.
