My Story

My husband Peter and I currently live in Bellingham, WA, about an hour and a half north of Seattle and are preparing to serve in Mozambique, starting February 2016. I grew up in Minnesota and moved to Bellingham to study environmental science at Western Washington University. After graduating in 2010, I was able to serve as a campus missionary for a year with Campus Christian Fellowship, the college ministry that profoundly shaped me while I was a student.

Although I enjoyed reaching college students for Christ, my heart was really breaking for the poor. I had gone on a mission trip to Guatemala in college where we worked with a hospital ministry that housed kids who were dying of cancer from drinking polluted water. There I saw that I could use my degree in the mission field to fight problems like contaminated water and food shortages due to poor stewardship. Shortly after I returned home, I was praying and I felt like God told me that he wanted me to do long-term mission work, specifically in Africa.

When Peter and I originally applied to work with TEAM, we were going to begin with just one year of service. However, TEAM responded by asking us to consider serving long-term, as they had been praying for people with our skill sets and passions to come to Mozambique to start a demonstration center for biblically-based sustainable agriculture and reforestation methods. After much prayer, we accepted their challenge, knowing that the Holy Spirit was prompting us to buy a one-way ticket! We are excited to serve God in Mozambique by empowering Africans to fight hunger while also introducing them to Jesus, addressing both physical and spiritual needs.
