Make sure that your endurance carries you all the way without failing, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”James 1:2-4

Why are you going on this trip to Rwanda?
I am so grateful for this opportunity to go to Rwanda. I have been blessed over the last 20 plus years to live in and travel to other countries in Africa. I look forward to the opportunity to serve in Rwanda knowing that I will learn more than I will share.
What are your favorite outside-of-work activities?
I love spending time with my family especially my four grandchildren shown in the picture, reading and running.
