It all started in 2009, when I did my DTS with YWAM in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. God awoke a desire in me to serve abroad, and he gave me a love for the Latin American culture, language, and people. In 2012, I returned to Santa Cruz for a year and a half and worked at the YWAM base with different schools, and served as a translator. During this trip to Bolivia, God continued to work in my life, and transform my heart. In 2015, I went down to San Quintin with OLCOM for the first time, as a translator and ministry staff. I loved my experience there and this year will be my third summer. I love connecting with the families, the children, and the pastors in the communities, and working with the teams and staff that come down. It’s an opportunity to be used by God in incredible ways, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of what God is doing in the San Quintin Valley.
