SERVICE AT THE MISSION SINCE
I surrendered my life to Christ in 2006. We self-destructed our lives with meth addiction. The Lord took hold of us and planted us at the Norfolk Rescue Mission. We are members of Northern Heights Church.
We have 5 children: Britney who is active Army, being deployed in January, Jarad who works for the Chamber of Commerce, Jeremiah lives and works in Lincoln, Lyndsay who is going to college and working, and Shaun in Sioux City, and “my man” and husband of 23 years, George. We are empty-nesters with a dog, Max.
I am in charge of the Hope House ladies and Women’s Discipleship Program. I am fortunate to come to work every day with a purpose. I love filling the girls with Hope and sharing the Love of Jesus. I am also in charge of the kitchen at the Mission. We provide 3 meals a day, 7 days a week. I have also been involved with the Jail Ministry and represent the Mission with the courts. I love to plan events and our Annual Banquet. I love hospitality and sharing our resources.
I was Christmas shopping and got called back to the Mission for an emergency. When I entered Hope House, there were no lights on. All the ladies came out and yelled, “Surprise! Happy Birthday!” and I slipped and fell. It was a hoot.
“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him. Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.” Psalm 40:1-4
