From serving with International Ministries in
north India to serving at
the Mission Center
in Valley Forge has been an exciting journey.
It has been like moving to a new country.
People here at International Ministries have been wonderful.

One of my many challenges has been the working of the telephone and transferring callers to the right people. What do I bring to the IM office? - My wealth of experience in India and Asia, involvement in a Christian international school setting with people from around the world and my administrative skills.
My service in India is continuing as I work with a number of IM partners on a school survey. Many of the partners run Christian Schools – some old and well established and some that are struggling for one reason or another. Through the survey and time with teachers and principals we hope to be able to see the strengths of the schools, where changes may need to be made and where we may be able to provide help. I am delighted to be continuing this work. I returned to India in April to visit a number of schools.
