A little about myself

Well, I said I was going to tell you a little about myself so here it goes.  I am an only child who was raised in Uruguay South America.  My parents are missionaries and have been there for 32 years.  I left when I was 18 to go to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Mo.  I graduated in 1999 and returned to Uruguay.  During the last two years of college I began writing and keeping in touch with my best friend who is now my husband.  When I returned to Uruguay we began dating and we were married in April of 2001.  He decided he wanted to return to Springfield to go to College so in June of 2001 we came to USA.

This picture was one of the first pictures that was taken as missionaries to Uruguay South America

I feel very blessed to have grown up in another country.  It allowed me to see and experience things from a different perspective.  Although I went through some difficult times I can honestly say I would not change my life for anything.


I am so excited to see what God is going to do  in my family’s life.  I can’t wait to get approved in September and begin our deputation journey.  Will you pray with us that God will use us to glorify Him and encourage the churches that we visit.
