She served as a summer missionary in Mali and was involved in mission work for the next 12 years, including 4 1/2 years in the Middle East. Her travels have taken her to 15 countries. During the last 3 years she started a non profit and opened 8 Bible Schools in AZ. She was a delightful, fun loving woman who had a passion for her Lord Savior Jesus Christ.
