Heroes in the garden - Seven faithful ladies stepped in and put on their Wonder Woman attire (flowered dresses and garden party hats) and raised over $4000 for the La Posada ministry (http://www.drumsforchrist.org/la-posada.html)! Who knew that tea cakes and cucumber sandwiches and scones and cookies would bring us a miracle, but that’s what happened! Dozens of women showed up in their party dresses and came together to bless the La Posada care apartment and all of the front-line ministry workers who will be receiving care and counseling, rest and restoration here in Spain. Special thanks to all who went above and beyond with donations and gifts.
Thanks, Hometown Heroes!!!! So glad to have you serve in ministry and mission with us! Way to go, Team!
In my USA life, I was a teacher in Texas for 15 years. I was also a professional photographer, a soccer mom, a horsewoman, and the neighborhood hospitality queen. I did "Joanna Gaines farmhouse style" before Chip and JoJo were even a thing - we restored an 1884 Victorian farmhouse in small town Texas and did shiplap walls until I thought I'd go crazy. I taught at NASA, scuba dived with astronauts in training, and studied animals at Sea World for educational purposes. I've tried just about everything, because I have an insatiable need to know if I can do it! Never underestimate a Texas girl in cowboy boots!
In 2006, my husband Billy and I became cross-cultural workers (CCWs) with TMS Global. For five years, we served in three rural Quechua Wanca villages in the Andes of Peru. And when I say rural, I mean RURAL - like no potty! I spent my days in Peru learning to live a Quechua lifestyle in a rustic adobe house - cooking Peruvian foods, sewing with Quechua women, raising my chickens and goats and pigs, and planting my gardens. Now I live my life in small town Spain, serving other cross-cultural workers via teaching and training and care, and helping displaced people to navigate their new reality in Europe.
I'm passionate about fostering personal growth, growth in community, and growth in The Kingdom. Walking alongside others and helping them to use their unique design, their gifts and strengths and maximize their abilities to fulfill their God-given purpose - that's what makes my heart sing!
