I started at GHM in April of 2016 with a desire to be involved in mission.  To me, mission is to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, by using the spiritual gifts that God has blessed us with. This is done by directly talking or working with people and indirectly by opening doors for others to share the gospel.  I believe we do this each day through our work at GHM, by supporting hospitals and missionaries in other countries. 


I volunteered this year with 2nd grade students in AWANA at our church.   I was absolutely amazed at kid’s ability to memorize bible verses and how much they loved coming every Wednesday night.  As far as my likes, it would be doing things outside. That could be hiking, inline skating, skiing, fishing, walks … and if it involves family/friends, all the better. 


I like many types of food, but have never had anything really adventurous.  


One of my favorite Bible verses is Ephesians 2:8-10   “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so no one can boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
