Forest Grove has been my spiritual family for over 26 years. God surprised me when He opened the door for me to serve in the area of Missions in 2008. I have always had a heart for missions – especially among unreached people groups. I love caring for missionaries, discipling others and praying for nations to know Jesus. It is a real privilege to do that here among a church that reaches out from the river to the ends of the earth. ” May the nations praise You O God” Psalm 67:5 I love spending time with my husband Scott and our 3 almost grown up kids! I am thankful that we have had the opportunity to serve in missions together in various ways. God has used them to teach me about love, surrender and trust. I am refreshed by sharing tea with a friend, being outside in the sunshine with a good book or baking in my kitchen.
