I accepted Christ at a young age but did not become serious about my faith until my junior year of high school.
God started putting Africa on my heart my second year of college and opened the door for me to visit after graduation. During that trip, God poured His love for the people of Africa through me. Another trip to Africa and a Seminary degree later, God gave me desire to go overseas for longer to discover if I could live there long term. I also needed to see how God could use the gifts and abilities that He had given me. I went to Uganda for two years with WorldVenture to work as an Administrative Assistant with Hope Alive!. During that time, I discovered that I loved living in Uganda. I started a Bible study with high school girls and through that, saw their immense spiritual needs.
With a love for Uganda and a heart for discipleship. God put a desire in my heart to return to Uganda for long term service. With another WorldVenture couple, I will be establishing a discipleship school for high school graduates. During the nine month period between high school and college, we will begin a six month intense boarding discipleship school. I will focus on the girls while the other couple will focus on the boys.
There is nothing like having the peace and joy from the Lord knowing that you are exactly where He wants you to be. The transforming work of Christ is needed in the lives of Ugandans. I am honored and humbled to be able to share Christ with these girls and anticipate the way that He will transform them.
