I was raised in a Christian home by parents who were saved just after I was born.  When I was four years old, I asked the Lord to save me, forgive me of my sins and come into my life.  I grew up with a desire to please the Lord and my parents; however, I do not think that I was really challenged in my faith until I was a teen and my family joined an independent, Bible-believing church with a good youth group.  It was there that I was challenged to start acting on my faith.  After attending that church for several months I recommitted my life to the Lord and was baptized.  Throughout high school I really wanted to live a life that pleased the Lord and I wanted to choose the college that would be the Lord’s will for my life.  I first attended Word of Life Bible Institute for one year.  That year was an incredible encouragement to my faith.  I began to see the value of a daily quiet time, solid Christian friends, and being held accountable.  My desire to serve the Lord grew and grew.  I then attended Liberty University where I continued to grow in my relationship with the Lord.  I trusted Him completely as He led me to study abroad in Sevilla, Spain for five months.

As I finished my schooling at Liberty, the Lord gave me a desire to return to Spain and reach out to the lost.  This is where my heart for missions began.  While I was planning on going to Spain, I was teaching Spanish (my major in college) and watching for opportunities to open up for my return.  It was at that time that I met Tim and learned of his desire to go to Mexico.  In searching for God’s direction I began to pray about serving in Mexico.  After a period of time I realized that my love for Spain was based on its culture, history and architecture.  Tim’s love for Mexico centered around the people.  Through the course of many mission trips I too have come to love the Mexican people and desire to serve there as the Lord leads.  I am so thankful that the Lord was faithful to answer my prayers and, Lord willing, Mexico is where we will serve Him one day soon.
