About Me

In September of 2016, I entered into a whole new role as a Walking Together Program Coordinator with EduDeo Ministries. As you can well imagine, I am in a “discovery” phase of what this role entails.

Part of that role is getting to meet new EduDeo Partners and it is to that end that I am excited to be going to Ghana to learn more about International Needs Ghana (INGH) and about how Christian education can be grown in their context. I am also entrusting this new learning experience into our faithful Lord's hands as we strive to serve our brothers and sisters at INGH...I am honoured to be asked to be a part of this learning journey.

I am especially thankful that Darlene Eerkes (along with her husband Peter) will be part of the facilitator team.

Wow - what a week.

Presenting and sharing a vision for Christian education with our brothers and sisters in Ghana was amazing...

The INGH staff along with school leaders opened their hearts and minds to what was shared and I believe there is new enthusiasm to deliver an authentic Christian program that goes far beyond prayer and Biblical learning.

Thanks Ghana for your hospitality and for working so hard!!!

We have been blessed!!!!
