"Here I Am, Lord. Send Me" (Is 6:8)

Update! 07/30/18 ~ 

Through generous contributions I am getting closer to my goal.  A thousand thank you's to those who have donated.    Many friends and family have donated separately to  cover specific expenses, reducing the total I need down to only $7,000.  

If you are able, please consider contributing to this mission.  It will not be possible without your help. 

Thank you and God bless you!


In 1995 God put Africa on my heart and fulfilled that calling in 2006 when he sent 12 of us from St. John of the Cross Parish, Western Springs, IL to Holy Cross Parish Bugmebe, Uganda East Africa. 

God called me to return in 2007 and 2010.  During my visits I became fast friends with Luke Muhindo, a seminarian preparing for the priesthood.  Our friendship blessed us with many opportunities to minister to the people of Bugembe and the surrounding areas.

For the past 8 years, I have been blessed to minister to all of you through social media with daily prayers and meditations as well as personally in ministries at St. John of the Cross and currently at Our Mother of Sorrows Parish in Tucson , AZ.

I have been prayerfully awaiting God's call to take me back to Africa.  That call came to me recently from Fr. Luke, inviting me to join him in the slums of Nairobi at Holy Cross Parish, Dandora Kenya for three months this fall.  God has opened many doors to help bring this next calling to fruition.  This trip will allow me to learn the operations of this African parish and discern a 2 year commitment that would take place from 2019 to 2021.

I humbly request that you prayerfully consider donating to this campaign to help with the expenses I can't cover myself.  This mission will begin on Sept. 5th and I am hopeful that we will accomplish this goal of fundraising by August 15th.

I thank you in advance for your support, financial and in prayer. I also ask, if you're willing, to share my fundraising campaign with friends and family who you think may be interested in helping. May God bless you. 

As we are all one with the body of Christ, I remain prayerfully and faithfully your sister in Christ.



And the Lord said, "Whom shall I send?" and I said, "Here I am Lord, send me."  Isaiah 6:8
