For as long as I can remember, I have always had a desire to be in medical missions.  After I graduated with my nursing degree, I worked as an RN at a local hospital in Colorado Springs, but the draw in my heart to international missions was never far from my mind.

As I grew in my career and in my personal life, I sensed God telling me it was time to look into long-term missions.  He brought into my life a couple who served in Eastern Europe during the 1980s.  Their story fascinated me, and I began to sense God pulling my heart toward Eastern Europe.  The more I learned about the spiritual climate here, the more my heart was drawn.  This area was the setting for the birth of Christianity; Paul’s ministry in the Scriptures took him through this area.  Yet, now, it is a place full of religious tradition, but starkly lacking in living faith based on a relationship with our Creator and Savior.

This same couple introduced me to their sending organization, headquartered in Colorado.  Founded during World War II by a Navy Chaplain burdened for Europe’s spiritual state, this organization has over 300 missionaries located all across Europe.

Proverbs 31:9
In January 2014, I moved to the Balkans to volunteer with the only pro-life crisis pregnancy center in the area.  Open for a year and a half, this center, named “Lydia – A Beating Heart,” has already seen God move in mighty ways.

My other passion for ministry is through music.  I have been serving in worship through piano and keyboard in various ways for the last 20 years.  I look forward to seeing how God will provide a way to use that here as well.
