Bringing the Father to the Fatherless - As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is GOOD NEWS from a far country.  Proverbers 25:25

I am very thankful to have been raised in a small farm town in N. Central Kansas where my family attended the Lutheran church.  Like many families, what we portrayed in public did not match our lives at home.   To "escape", I married at 19 into equally difficult circumstances.  

Only 25 years old, I found myself desperate and believed my only solution was to end my own life.  Discovering I was pregnant with my daughter changed my plan.  Had I succeeded, I would have sent myself to a devil’s hell, missing heaven by 18”, the distance between my head and heart.  I knew of Christ, but I didn't understand salvation or what if meant to have a personal relationship with him. My life was broken.  

After a painful divorce, I found myself a single mother steeped in depression, bitterness and fear.  I hired a babysitter so I could attend college classes. She introduced me to the Lord Jesus Christ and through her faithful witness and testimony in September 1992, at the age of 27, I received new life in Christ.   I was soon discipled and mentored by other Christians and with God’s help raised my children, working for 20+ years as a Certified Public Accountant and Auditor for large corporations. In 1998, while serving a summer at a Christian Camp, I surrendered to full-time service, telling the Lord that once my children were grown my life was His. 

In the fall of 2011, I found myself an empty-nester, and God brought that promise back to mind.  As I sought his will, my heart was captured by the testimonies of a missionary couple going to Africa. Professionals like myself, they were surrendering all to serve Christ. At my home church Mission Conference in the Spring of 2012 the Holy Spirt drew me, and I responded “Here Am I, send me!”  In February of 2013, God opened the door for my first trip to Liberia.  There God confirmed his call on my life, and introduced me to the people and very great needs of Liberian women and children.
