We moved to New York, and I served in a Lutheran Church there we planted a church. This led to our movable ministry called Lutheran Renewal Outreach to believers on the East Coast. I've homeschooled various ministries and been part of young moms Bible studies, prayer and intercession, healing prayer, women's ministry, etc. We love Jesus, and we so appreciate your welcoming hearts!
