January Ministry Update

Welcome to 2021

2021 has finally arrived and the first month has proven this is not going to be a boring year. Aside from ongoing world events, our team with Overland Missions continues moving forward and seeing God working in amazing ways.

We held our annual Overland Missions conference in Florida this year with our growing staff, community, and fellow believers with a hear missions. Vision was poured out for the nations, our team grew in unity, and incredible testimonies from the field were shared. My favorite part of our annual conference is being able to spend time with fellow missionaries who are in different nations. It becomes a huge family reunion and a chance to catch up in person about how everyone is doing. My teammates are absolute rockstars and their faith encourages me every day.

Please feel free to check out what ministry with our team has looked like this past year from every region of the world we’re currently in. Our annual report is full of amazing testimonies of God’s faithfulness in 2020. 

Our team has also released an updated ministry video highlighting our team globally. Please feel free to check it out!

On a personal note, 2021 had another eventful beginning. My mom had a heart attack at the beginning of January. The symptoms were mild but thankfully she took it serious and the doctors were able to catch everything quickly. Thankfully she’s made a full recovery, feels great and we’re so thankful as a family for the Lord’s hand in all of this!

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

Support Update

I am very excited to announce that the monthly budget for this next season has been met! God’s faithfulness continues to be proven over and over. Thank you to everyone who sows in finances and prayers for the ministry in Zambia.

If you’re still interested in partnering on a monthly, annual, or one time basis, please feel free to do so here. Anything beyond the monthly goal goes toward special ministry projects. Please put my name or “3004” in the memo box on the form so our office knows to designate the contribution to my account. Thank you!

One of the main projects these funds make possible is our annual leaders conference in Zambia. It costs an average of $50 per leader to cover their conference costs and transportation. Our teams are growing we’d love to see our conference continue to grow as well!

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. It means a lot to me and is making a difference in the lives of the people we are reaching in Zambia! 



December Ministry Update

2019-2020 Review

It’s the last few days of 2020 and already a month has passed since arriving here in the States! I hope everyone has had a wonderful time with family during the holiday season, whether it’s been in person or zoom calls. I’ve been able to celebrate with my family here in Florida. We also received amazing news that my 2 year old nephew, Ben, has officially been adopted! A wonderful way to close out this year!

December is an amazing time to look back on everything God has done this past year. Here’s a video highlighting the 2019-2020 ministry season. The testimonies are endless and God has proven his goodness through it all! Thank you all for being a crucial part of this ministry through your partnership and prayers!

Support Update

With the start of the new year, I am continuing to push forward with raising up the needed funds for the next ministry season. Praise the Lord for new partners that have already joined, as well as current partners increasing their commitments! Thank you!!

As of right now, I have $310 in monthly support needed to be considered fully funded. Please prayerfully consider partnering, or even increasing your donation, with the ministry we’re doing in Simwatachela!

Also, if you have your church, small group, or even a friend who might be interested in learning more about the ministry here in Zambia, please let me know. We can even arrange a Zoom chat or FaceTime while I’m in the States! I greatly appreciate it!

I’m looking forward to seeing you all and sharing about everything God is doing here in Zambia! 

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. It means a lot to me and is making a difference in the lives of the people we are reaching in Zambia! 


Following A Path

Sometimes in life you meet a fork in the road. One way looks familiar, similar to where you’ve already been. The other is usually  completely unknown. Most often, God is calling us down that unknown path.

I first landed in Zambia in 2005. A 2 week trip with Overland Missions completely wrecked my life. Once I returned home, I’d finish my last year of college, get a job in the suburbs of Chicago as a music teacher, and keep serving in my church. That was plan. It seemed like a great plan. God had other ideas.
