I was born and raised in a Christian home on the Central Coast of California. Going to church was always normal for us, and I greatly enjoyed attending. When I was five years old, I was in our church’s AWANA program and heard a message about Hell. It scared me to the bone, so that night I prayed “the sinner’s prayer” only out of fear of going to Hell. I had no understanding of what Salvation is or recognized why I needed a Savior. Three years later, my church had a guest speaker on a Wednesday evening. He spoke about salvation and presented the gospel message very clearly. I remember sitting in that pew and feeling so convicted and knowing that I was on my way to Hell. Right there in my seat I confessed my sin to Jesus and accepted Him as my Savior. A few months later I was baptized in my home church. Through my teen years, I have been able to serve many summers at Ironwood Christian Camp and grow in my relationship with God. It was during this time that I feel like my personal walk with Christ really began. Serving at camp broke me and quickly made me realize just how selfish I was. I remember coming across 2 Corinthians 4:18 where it talks about living for what is eternal, not temporal. I hadn’t been living with eternity in mind. One evening at camp when I was fifteen, I rededicated my life to Christ. Working at camp also kindled my love for ministry. Serving people and reaching them for Christ is such a joy! In the fall of 2021 I even had the opportunity to move to Ironwood Christian Camp full-time for a year. That year at camp grew me in so many ways spiritually, and taught me practical ministry and life skills. Last fall I made a very last-minute decision to join the Frazor Team and was unsure of what the year would bring. It turned out to be one of the most stretching years for me as I adjusted to this new and unique style of ministry. Traveling the country and serving local churches wasn’t something I had envisioned myself doing, but I absolutely loved it! God taught me so much, and is continuing to do so as I travel for a second year on the Frazor Team.
