I felt God calling me to the mission field as early as 2010 during a medical mission trip to the Philippines.  Then, in October of 2011, I went with the International Commission (IC) to Myanmar and God stirred my heart once again.  During 2012, I traveled to many SE Asian countries with the IC team. In October of 2012, while serving in Cambodia, I felt God calling me to full time service. I have served on the mission field off and on since October 2011 and on a full time basis since January 2013.  I have been blessed to serve in many capacities while following my call. I have served as a “fill-in” pastor for a short while in Thailand.   I have helped provide water and shared the gospel to a group who were without a country (Muslins). I have preached in several churches in the US and in SE Asia.  In 2013, I attended the Calvary Chapel Church’s Bible College in Thailand (a four month program). For the past six months, I have taught English in a Bible College in Myanmar and preached in the church in my village, as needed.  Through all these things, I have tried share the light of Christ so that no one would perish. Currently, we are planning on returning to Myanmar on March 23 where we plan to teach English in our home for six months while we prepare to move to a remote village in Myanmar to start a church in our home.
