Student Missionary 2012-2017. Career missionary 2017-present.

My Mom taught my sisters and me to enjoy reading, and we read many missions stories as we were growing up. When I was 16 years old I went on a mission trip to Ecuador. After that, I knew God was calling me to long-term missions.

After I graduated from nursing school, I went to Southern Adventist University to study music. My plan was to get my bachelor’s degree in music and at the same time get experience working as a nurse and then see where in the mission field God led me. During my first year at Southern I found out about their student-mission program and felt God calling me to apply. He led me here to Palawan where my dream of mission nursing came true. After four and a half years, I returned to the States for part of a year to finish my fundraising and attend AFM summer training to make the transition to career missionary.

The Palawan Project does church planted through a clinic, multiple mission schools and other ministries. The clinic provides medical care for the Palawano people that they wouldn’t have access to otherwise. Through the clinic we are able to meet and interact with people from many villages and it provides ministry opportunities that otherwise may not be possible as we minister to them not only physically but also spiritually.

Frontier Stories

Willing to Risk?

Sometimes God asks us to do hard things, to go to hard places, to step outside our comfort zones and follow Him with childlike faith. Are we willing to do that?
