Hi, my name is Abby. I grew up in the church and have always had a heart to serve. My heart to serve began at a young age. I started serving in kids ministry when I was a teenager, when I graduated high school I became a youth leader and have been serving there for 6 years.

While on a short term missions trip with the youth in June of 2019 to Bogota, Colombia, we served with Javier Riano and Megan Schilling. In the short amount of time that I spent in Bogota, Colombia I fell in love. Colombia had felt like home. There was something different about Colombia that I hadn’t experienced on other missions trips. When I got home I had an unsettling feeling that I wasn’t supposed to stay here. After praying & reflecting, I heard the Lord tell that I was supposed to go back in a month which sounded pretty crazy to me. But God was working behind the scenes and few days later one of the youth girls who just graduated and had also gone on the trip to Colombia asked me if I would go back with her! I immediately said yes, without any hesitation. We will be going back together for 9 months and we'll be working alongside Javier Riano with the at-risk children and youth of Bogota.

Before going to Colombia I had always told myself that I wouldn’t be a missionary and that it wasn’t for me. But God had other plans and now I can’t wait to go back and serve the people in Colombia!
