I was raised in Portage, WI. When I was six in an after-school Bible class taught by my mother, I took my first step towards giving my heart to God, recognizing that I was a sinner and needed salvation from my sins. In my teen years at a summer camp, I recognized that salvation also included a commitment on my part to do as the Bible commands and to give my life to whatever God wanted me to do. I attended Moody where I was challenged to be open to anywhere doing anything for Him. I also met David at Moody and we were married in 1983. After David’s training at Denver Seminary, we joined TEAM with the goal of serving in Zimbabwe passing on to other Zimbabweans what David had received during his time studying in the US.

Because Zimbabwe is an English speaking country, it is an easy place in this respect to come and do short-term missionary work. These past few years, Sue has overseen Team’s TEAMServe program which is for anyone wishing to come to help in Zimbabwe through TEAM from two weeks to one year in duration. They come to help at the Karanda Hospital medically, educationally or with maintenance; and in the capital city of Harare with HTC ministries, church ministries and orphan ministries.
