Before heading to the field, he completed three years as a part of the Undershepherd In Training program.

The Lord led her to study Women’s Ministry at Bob Jones University and she graduated in 2007. She worked as a counselor for several years in the dorms while pursuing a Masters in Elementary Education. She taught 5th grade for 2 years before retiring to raise her children at home.
