Parish/Organization: Trinity Episcopal Church, Tariffville


As a teacher for more than 30 years, I have a passion for seeing that marginalized children, especially girls, receive a solid education. Many children in developing countries lack opportunities to attend school for a variety of societal, economic, and religious reasons. Having made multiple trips to Nigeria, I have been privileged to be part of planning a school complex, meeting with parents, school leaders, and building committee members, and training teachers. While trips to Nigeria were never in my plans, God had different is amazing what God can do with ordinary folks when you trust and follow!
