About Me

My photo

When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

  1. Are you going to study 9/11 this week? We are getting ready now. Excited...but I know it will be a difficult reality to ponder and learn.
    Will move us to pray more and be more informed at so many realms.
