I currently live in Iowa City, Iowa, where I’ve been attending the University of Iowa, studying to become a nurse, and serving as a small group leader for a student ministry called the Salt Company.

A couple years ago, Jesus opened my eyes and heart to see and receive His grace in a new way. Since then, He has given me a desire to serve, spread the good news of the Gospel, and become a vessel through which He can share His love and show His glory. Most recently, God has given me a passion for how nursing will allow me to serve those in vulnerable situations. This has led to a growing interest in women’s health and, more specifically, what it would look like to serve disadvantaged women and children as a nurse.

I have an incredible opportunity this summer to explore this interest, serve, and learn from the midwives as a nursing intern at Shalom Christian Birthing Home in Antipolo City, Philippines! I plan to be there for two months from June-July and look forward to assisting new moms as they come to give birth in the clinic. I will be assisting in delivering babies, aiding in providing prenatal and postnatal care to the mothers and their babies, as well as forming relationships with the patients and the midwives there. I also look forward to being involved with community outreach, discipleship, and Bible studies with the people at Shalom. 

I would greatly appreciate your prayers that God will be glorified in my time in the Philippines and that those that I am serving would come to know His grace and love. If you would like to give towards the expenses of my trip, you can do so via the donate button provided. If you have questions or want to learn more, please contact me for additional details.

Thank you so much for your support in any way. I wouldn’t want to go without the amazing encouragement of the body of Christ and giving you all an opportunity to learn about what God is doing in the Philippines!
