Our missionaries are normal people from all walks of life who have dedicated their lives to serving and following Jesus wherever He calls them. Want to meet them? Check out our Missionary Directory.
I am serving in the International Ministries Dept. of the Word of Life home office as an Executive Administrative Assistant and Launch Administrator. Our Launch ministry works closely with our Word of Life missionaries around the world providing opportunities for adults to serve the Lord as short-term missionaries on the mission field, from 2 weeks up to two years. I work with each individual from application to raising their support funds to arriving on the field; encouraging and praying for them.
I had the privilege to grow up in a Christian home. At the age of 12, I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior. I always wanted to be a secretary; in 1968 I got my first job and it was as a secretary; over the years I have worked in various business offices. In April 1983, the Lord opened the door for me to move to Schroon Lake, NY and become a secretary with Word of Life at the Home Office. During my 30 plus years with Word of Life, I have served as the Administrative Assistant to Harry Bollback; full-time missionary and English speaking secretary, in Portugal, and then back in the Home Office to Larry Bollback, Director of Word of Life Portugal and VP of Evangelism; and presently Executive Administrative Assistant and Launch Administrator in the International Ministries Dept. in the Home Office.
My life verse is: Psalm 37:4 - "Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." My ministry verse is: Psalm 100:2 - "Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing."
