The Least of These ©2003 -
The events that brought me to penning this biography for The Least of These may seem
trivial and non-
I moved to the Oregon Coast for employment in 1980. The following year I rededicated my life to Christ and began the life long pursuit of God. I met and married my wonderful husband Mark in 1983 in Newport, Oregon. In the early years of our marriage, we both taught Sunday school, and helped with the youth program of our local church.
Over the past twenty years, I have been involved in different aspects of Christian
service. I have taught Sunday school, helped with teen youth groups, played keyboard for our church worship team, and taught Women’s Bible study groups.
I help with my son and daughter’s school, both in the classroom and specific projects. These have included reading programs, math help, fundraising, booster groups, and site council’s for the local school.
There have been a few events that have transpired in my life that have directly altered the course of my life. One of these events was the opportunity to travel to the Crimea region in the Ukraine. I worked with The Least of These organization at a summer camp for orphan children. Those two weeks influenced my life in several different ways.
The first came as I witnessed the suffering of children in ways that I had never seen before. The second direct impact was God impressing me to be “His hands and His feet, to go where He would send me.” I felt the mandate from God to give of my time and resources for these children. In actuality, what I have given has been so small, compared to all that I have received through the children of the Ukraine.
This year, 2003, was my second trip to the Ukraine. This trip was very special for me because my 15 year old son, Tyler, was also a part of our ministry team at Camp Gorney. I am looking forward to our next summer’s outreaches in Crimea, Ukraine.
