TRANSFORMATIONAL IMPACT: My dream is to see Villages of Hope Africa (VOH) children grow up with God-given hope and embrace adulthood as contributing members of society.
MINISTRY FOCUS: In sub-Saharan Africa, millions of children have no access to education, or their parents don’t have the means to send their children to school. Without proper education and other essentials like nutrition and healthcare, little hope exists for many children in this region of the world.
To help respond to this need, I serve as VOH's administrator for all ten of our centres, ensuring we maintain sound financial accountability and effective programming, policies, and strategies. My desire is that all the children who come to VOH Centers receive the highest quality care possible.
YOUR IMPACT: You will help bring lasting hope to vulnerable children throughout sub-Saharan Africa by providing them with holistic (emotional, intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual) loving care.
MINISTRY HISTORY: Having been called to missions from a young girl onward, I graduated from seminary, embarked on several short-term mission trips, and worked for over 20 years at World Vision Canada as a marketing director. In 2019, God opened the door for me to serve with VOH, first on a one-year assignment. Then sensing His call to transition to a full-time role, I became a global worker in 2020 and am currently based in Mwanza, Tanzania.
- For God to transform the lives of many more VOH children as they experience His love for them.
- For God to fill our VOH staff with His wisdom and creativity to implement life-changing programs for the children with our care.
- For God to continue to guide me, use me for His kingdom work, and help me take one day at time.
