Thank you so much for your interest in my ministry to San Ramón, Perú.
My heart for missions began when I was in high school. I majored in missions (Bible) at Pensacola Christian College and even went on a couple of missions trips over the years (Ivory Coast and Romania), but I knew that my mission field was somewhere else. Four years ago, during my daughter’s junior year (2014) in high school, my daughter and I discussed the possibility of us doing a mission trip together. I contacted a college friend (Candy Surrett) who grew up as a missionary kid in Perú about the possibility of going with her. Through prayer the Lord confirmed that we should go and serve through Hope for Women Ministries. That summer we joined with several different churches, serving by sharing our testimonies and teaching at women’s conferences. I absolutely fell in love with the people, the country, the need, the “all” of Perú. I firmly believe that the Lord has placed a burden on my heart to return. The Lord has allowed me to return to Peru the past three summers (2015, 2016, and 2017), and again serve the women, teens, and children in several different cities. The Lord affirmed the call to Perú and placed San Ramón on my heart.
For years, because of my divorce, I believed that the Lord was done with me. He has actually shown me that He wants to use my past to bring others to Him. There are many women who are hurting and who need His love. I am thankful that He uses broken vessels. I am blessed that He has turned my mess into a message for Him.
The Lord has called me to serve in San Ramón, Peru. He has placed on my heart that I am to begin my deputation process in August of 2017, with the prayer of being on the field full-time in July of 2018. I know that that sounds impossible, but with the Lord, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. I can’t tell you “why” I have the peace about July 2018 in my heart, I just do.
I am being sent from my home church, Country Woods Baptist Church, and have become an affiliate missionary of Light for Living, Inc., who serves as my mission board.
