I grew up in a Christian home with Godly parents pouring into my life. At age 5, I came to know Christ as my personal Savior. But being so young and unwise, I did not develop that relationship with my Lord. As a result, I turned away from the Lord. Between ages 9-12, I was very bitter from past hurts and hardened my heart towards God. I knew that I was wrong, but I was too ashamed to seek help. So I continued going down the wrong path. I ran as far away from the Lord as I could but thankfully He didn’t let me get far. I was so convicted but I was too afraid to change. Until later that summer, I attended a summer camp with my cousin. On the Wednesday of that week there, the pastor got up and started to share what it meant to be saved and how we are offered salvation. He shared Ephesians 2:8-9, which has become one of my life verses. During his message, I broke down in tears. I saw that I had been running from God and I knew I needed to change. I prayed that God would forgive me for running from Him and I prayed that He would use me in any way He chose. After that, I felt so relieved. It was like an actual weight was lifted from me. I began studying God’s Word for myself and trying to grow. I join a girl's small group and got some really good Godly counsel. Since then, I have felt God calling me to the full-time ministry on the mission field. I have attended Word of Life Bible Institute, which is where I met Scott. Scott shared with me his heart for the youth ministry in Australia and God began to soften my heart towards the same ministry. I am very excited to join my husband in serving the youth of Australia by proclaiming the Gospel and showing each one the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
