It all began in 1989 when Helen took a 2-week trip into Russia with a team that would share the gospel to thousands through pantomime. God captured her heart with the reality that most people, billions, have never heard Jesus’ name and the gospel of salvation. Helen’s passion is to bring the good news of the gospel to the unreached and untold and then to see these new believers discipled so that they can go out and do likewise.
Her career in developing curriculum and training and coaching teams as a Speech Pathologist was a steppingstone to the missions projects she would serve in after retirement. Helen has traveled to 14 nations and participated in 44 missions projects serving in evangelism and discipleship. On many occasions she remains for extended periods to mobilize, coach, and train leadership in ongoing evangelism and discipleship.
