I am a life-long member of Trinity Lutheran Church and a graduate of Trinity Lutheran School class of 1978. I am proud that my children were the 4th generation of my family to graduate from Trinity Lutheran School. I have served on the Board of Elders for over 15 years and been involved in the mission committee. I am actively involved in the ministry of Compassion International which is a Christian organization that serves impoverished children world-wide by providing for their spiritual and physical needs. Trinity members have sponsored over 150 children as a result of my Compassion presentations at church. I have participated in 5 mission trips to El Salvador and Ecuador which have been live-changing to me and I am currently planning Trinity’s 3rd mission trip to El Salvador in July 2015.
