Welcome! After serving as a nurse in a children's center in Mozambique, Africa and directing the medical care of close to 50 children under the age of 5 years from 2008-2010 over 8,000 miles from friends and family, God has led me to spend a bit of time back at home in the States. I completed two online graduate certificate programs in public health with concentrations in Global Health and Maternal Child Health in August 2011 while working part-time in a local hospital here in Nashville. And, in this next season, God has called me to stay here in the States, move into a transitional neighborhood to walk life alongside them, and continue being closely involved in local and global missions. If you are reading this for the first time and would like to understand more of how I got to Mozambique check out May '07 and Feb '08 under blast from the past below. Or to find out how I decided upon this current's season's endeavor, check out Oct '11. Enjoy!
"Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sheep."
-Psalm 127: 1-2
"Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes." -Isaiah 54: 2
