My path into missions was not direct. I did not receive an obvious calling to missions as a child. I wanted to be a teacher, so I studied education at Bible college. After graduation, I agreed to work for two years, teaching children of North American missionaries in PerĂº. It was at the end of that short-term commitment that God led me to join Baptist Mid-Missions as a career missionary. After raising support, I served for a few years in a creative access country. After some time, my visa was not continued there, and I moved to the Dominican Republic. My team is not in a pioneer church-planting ministry, because the national church has several decades of history and is faithfully reproducing itself. I serve in various ministries (primarily education-related) in a provincial church under a Dominican pastor. As BMM missionaries, the goal of my team is to assist the Dominican Baptist churches in preparing the next generation of spiritual leaders.
