Posted in Estonia, Holiday

Thanksgiving in the Baltics

Welcome to my life in Estonia! I fully transitioned here on Monday, and will be here for the remainder of my two year term. I am excited to get to work!

Coming in just before Thanksgiving has proven to be a blessing. Not only does it give me a little extra rest time before diving in, it is allowing me the chance to connect with all of my Baltic area teammates. 

We gathered together in Vilnius, Lithuania for the holiday. Our group consists of teams from both Estonia and Lithuania. We are all working to plant churches in our respective areas. It was a great time sharing with each other. 

Today we are heading out to IKEA….time to start getting set up with the essentials! I guess you could say we are just continuing the Black Friday tradition in our own way 😊.

I am truly grateful for all of you. Your support, both financially, spiritually and emotionally has really been such an encouragement to me. Thank you for your prayers and your uplifting comments. I truly could not do this without you!


Born and raised in a Christian home, I felt God calling me to work overseas with children when I was only 11 years old. I graduated from Evangel University in Springfield, MO, and fully intended on serving two to three years in my hometown of Phoenix, then head overseas. But God had other plans. Two years into it, both of my parents began having health problems that continued for over 8 years. Twelve years after my graduation, my parents' health was restored and my student debt was finally paid off. Now, with 14 years of ministry (12 dedicated to ministry to children) under my belt, I am now fulfilling that calling God wrote on my heart at the age of 11. In Telavi, the Republic of Georgia, I am truly living my dream. God is doing some great things here, and I am so thrilled to be apart of it.
