God blessed me with a love for mathematics during my high school years, and this passion grew into a desire to teach missionary children, ultimately leading me to Fetzer Memorial Christian Academy in Lima, Peru, where I taught and assisted in administration. In addition to educating and discipling the academy’s missionary children, I enjoyed numerous opportunities to teach Sunday School and train Peruvian sisters in Christ to teach children as well.
After 23 years of a fulfilling and fruitful ministry in Peru, I followed God’s leading once again to a new ministry at Bibles International (BI), where He allowed me to utilize my mathematics skills in a different manner as the office finance manager. I was honored to serve in the home office of BI, supporting the many consultants traveling worldwide and assisting in the translation work that provides believers around the world with God’s Word in their heart language.
Barb became an emeritus BMM missionary in 2022.
