In the last 12 years, I have worked in child protection and advocacy in South Sudan; provided rescue and restorative services to African, Central Asian, and South American women who were trafficked to Thailand; and worked in the United States to keep children with multiple mental health diagnoses in families (and OUT of residential care). Currently, I teach kids in Korea.
I love people all around the globe – on each continent! I love Jesus and His call to global reconciliation. I hate war, poverty, racism, division, and the injustice that perpetuates those problems. I love learning, good relationships, hearing people’s stories, celebrating cultures, languages, and foods from everywhere.
I value partnership with others, so if we’re passionate about serving in the same directions, maybe we should work together!

When humans join together, we can do amazing things. Even beyond that, we can do things of eternal value when they are an outflow of communion with Christ. Please contact me if you want to partner with me through regular prayer.

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you
so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—
and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.”
