I was born into a Christian home. My parents were very passionate about teaching their children about Christ, and I came to an understanding of the gospel at a very early age. I was four years old when I expressed a desire to be saved. My mom carefully explained the gospel to me, and I placed my faith in Christ. As time passed, I struggled often with the assurance of my salvation, making multiple professions of faith through the years. By God’s grace, I was put into a position in which I heard a great deal of excellent preaching on the subject of assurance, and I came to understand that my assurance is not based on anything that I can do, but on the work of Christ and the promises of God.
When I was fourteen years old, I surrendered my life to the Lord for fulltime vocational ministry, and I had big dreams of what I would do for the Lord. I entered Bible College and graduated with a degree in Bible and Sacred Music, and soon afterward, I married my best friend and we entered fulltime evangelism. I loved the itinerant ministry, and fully expected to spend the rest of my life pursuing that calling. However, the Lord began to show my husband a need for church planting in America. When he posed the idea to me, I was very resistant to it at first, wanting to remain in a ministry I loved. God greatly worked in my heart, and I submitted my dreams for my life to him. His plans for our lives far surpass any dream that I could imagine. I can’t wait to serve alongside my husband and our children in the city of Seattle, to see the Lord work there for his glory.
