I grew up in a Christian home, and I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior when I was young. One night at bedtime, my dad asked me if I needed to be saved. I knew that I was a sinner, so I knelt down and prayed and asked Jesus Christ to save me from my sins and give me eternal life.
While in high school, I was able to go on several missions trips to Canada and Mexico. God used those missions trips in my life to start working in my heart about being a missionary. While attending Bible college, God confirmed that calling and began guiding me specifically to plant churches in Labrador. During this time period, I was able to intern with a missionary in Canada for a summer and gain some valuable ministry experience. It was also at Bible college that I met my wife, Christy.
I was brought up in a loving Christian home. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior when I was 9 years old, and I remember praying and asking the Lord to forgive me of my sins.
I surrendered my life to go to the mission field when I was a junior age girl. During college I met my future husband, Nate. He too had surrendered his life to the Lord. As we dated, he expressed an interest in going to Labrador as a missionary. God began to confirm His calling on my life.
We were married shortly after graduating from Bible college. We served at Great Hope Baptist Church in Chesapeake, VA for several years before deputation.
