Although being raised in what I describe as a non-born again denomination, I believed in Jesus Christ as my savior because my family (thanks Mom and Dad) was immersed in church activities in the Midwest. After moving several times, I came to Washington in 1973. I became a born again believer in 1975 following Pastor Bill Ritchie’s move from Salmon Creek Methodist to his following God’s urging and establishing Crossroads Community Church. My two daughters are both married, one in Oregon and one in Missouri. They each have a son – both being challenged in their lives by medical issues with major ramifications for their learning, growth and living day to day. However, their attitudes are contagious and uplifting to those who know them.
Currently, my job title at DELTA is Administrative Support Assistant. I am working on a variety of tasks focused on administrative operations and organization. After retiring from Clark College, I volunteered at a local hospital and a local non-profit organization and assisted with several projects at Harvest Community Church in Camas, WA. During extended leave to assist family last summer, God encouraged me to search for a more consistent in-depth service activity. Through various conversations, people and prayer I was led to DELTA Ministries.
I have much to learn about DELTA but I am thankful for being here, stretching my learning, working with committed and caring people and serving God during this season in this place.
