I was born in the States but relocated to Thailand at a very young age. Enrolling in a local school helped me become acculturated quite quickly. Growing up in church allowed me to hear about Jesus at a very young age. At the age of 15, I first heard about missionaries and this allowed me to dream of becoming one. Around the same time, I had a vision of being a missionary in a rural area. A couple of years later, I gave my life to the Lord and had my ups and downs in my journey with Him. However, God does not waste anything during this difficult time. When I recommitted my life to Him, God began to cultivate my heart for the lost especially in the area of nutrition and health.
For the past few years, I began to dream of ways to help people, especially those who are undereducated and have financial difficulty which prevents them from maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As Ken and I are preparing to move to Cambodia, I am working on finishing my M.S. in Nutrition, so I can get a job at a non-profit organization as a mean to network with these local Cambodians and help educate them to have a better lifestyle. In the future, I am also hoping to start a homegrown garden, teach cooking classes, and eventually start a farm-to-fork business, so we can use this opportunity to build natural networks with our employees, lead them to Jesus, and eventually disciple them.
