I am so excited to announce that I’ve been given the incredible opportunity to go serve in Latin America! For those of you who don’t know my story, about 7 years ago while I was in college, the Lord started changing my plans & speaking to me about full-time ministry. He specifically began to stir my heart for world missions. You see, growing up, I always loved learning about different cultures, places, and people, but I never wanted to be a “missionary”. Well friends, never say never!

I had been on several short trips here in America, in Eurasia, and Spain, but I never expected God to give me such a deep burden and call me to go in a longer context.

In 2017, I began the process to serve overseas for a few years, however life circumstances and difficulties prevented me from doing so. Ultimately, it wasn’t Gods timing for me to walk in what He had told me all those years ago, but I had hope that if the Lord was truly calling me to it, He would make a way in His time.

With losing my job due to Covid this summer, I began to pray about what was next in my life and specifically asked the Lord if now was the time for missions. Crazy, right? In a Pandemic? Well the Lord answered…and in such a way, I was left speechless. I wish I could list out everything that has happened this year and how God has been moving and speaking, but just know, there is no denying God’s hand is all over this. There are even other things in ministry that I’ve been passionate about for years, but haven’t been able to do, however, now I have the opportunity to be a part of. Even in the tiniest details, God has shown His faithfulness!!

Pastor Harold recently spoke about the purpose of waiting – there is a time or a season of waiting, from sowing the seed and seeing the harvest. God had planted the word (or seed) in me years ago, but for me to see the promise of going (or the harvest), the Lord needed to refine more areas of my character, teach me more about Himself, and prepare me for what He envisioned for my life and ministry.

If I had been able to go then – I wouldn’t be where I am today. I never imagined 2 years ago when God called me to Hosanna, a girl who barely knew any Spanish, would be here, being given the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus & to share His love in Latin America.

While I may be the first one being sent out, I am praying and believing that God is calling and raising up others here at Hosanna, to go and preach the Gospel to the nations and be light in the darkness.

I am so grateful and humbled that the Lord and Pastors Harold and Elena have entrusted me with representing Hosanna Woodlands.

Like it says in Isaiah: “Here I am, send me.”

All by Him. All for Him.

Please keep the people of Latin America and myself in prayer! I am so excited & expectant for all that God is going to do.
