I was born and raised on a farm in Zimbabwe, Africa. I grew up in a Christian family and we were blessed to be surrounded by TEAM missionaries who were active in our lives. At the age of 15 I went on a youth camp that was led by Tom and Lois Jackson (TEAM missionaries), and it was at this camp that I committed my life to Christ. This was to be the beginning of my spiritual journey.
After High School I flew over to the States and attended Columbia International University, in Columbia, South Carolina. I graduated C.I.U with my Undergraduate and Master's degrees. It was here that I met my husband, Steve. We were later on married.
I always knew in my heart that we would someday return to my home land, as my heart has never left this place. God confirmed this when just a few years ago He opened a number of doors for us and made it clear that this was where He wanted us! We will be working with the HIV/Aids orphans.
Steve and I have three precious children; Iain, Fiona and Callah.
We will be working with Anesu, which is an HIV/Aids orphan initiative.
Primarily, we will be working with the Shona people. At a very young age in my life, the Lord gave me a tender heart for these people because of the strengths I so admired in them. The Shona are truly the most loyal, gracious and joyful people that I know.
Primary Prayer Request:
As we travel this journey, God will be glorified despite of our weaknesses, failures and faults. Pray too, that our three wonderful children will grow more and more in love with Christ as they observe Him working in lives all around us (including our own), and that they will desire to know Him more and love Him more.
