My story begins at day one. I was born 2 1/2 months prematurely and was in NICU for the first 64 days of my life. I had many surguies, countless doctors appointments and a variety of medical issues my entire life. According to medical expectations, I was not suppossed to have any quality of life whatsover. But by God's grace, He saved me.
I grew up in a Christian home and was a pastor's kid. I trusted the Lord as my Savior as a middle school student and I have been serving the Lord in the church ever since. From an early age, I knew that God had special plans for me and that He left me on this earth for good reason.
In 2011, I had my first trip to the Philippines. This is when God gave me a burning desire to take the gospel to the Filipino people. Upon returning from that trip, I pursued this calling that God had placed on my life. I graduated from Boyce College, the undergraduate school of Southern Seminary, with a degree in Elementary Education and Missions.
