During a short-term mission’s trip to the former Soviet Union country of Belarus in 1993, God laid it on her heart to return to this part of the world to minister to the young people who were adrift with no sense of belonging or faith in God. She returned to Belarus for a one-year commitment in 1994 and ended up staying there for two years and then in 1996 moved to Latvia (also former Soviet Union, on the Baltic Sea) as a Missionary Associate. God expanded and broadened her vision and ministry as she served Him in faith. In 2000, she returned to the states to become a credentialed minister with Assemblies of God. After studying and completing the appointment process and itineration she returned to Latvia in the end of 2002 to continue to minister in the country and with the people God has called me to. In order to reach this country for the Lord, we must reach the children and youth of Latvia. And the old traditional ways will not attract the worldly-wise children and youth of today. Her vision and ministry is to see the church come out of its four walls and evangelize their own, planting churches where there are none! To this end, she train children’s ministry leaders and Sunday School teachers to reach this generation.
