About me

Gender Female

Location Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand
Introduction During my last 31 years in missions, I have lived a different life, intense, purposeful, rewarding and oftentimes exhausting. I am passionate - about God, life, family, orphans, adoption and missions. I love my life as a lover of Jesus, wife, mother and missionary! Our family has been living in New Zealand for 9 years now and we love it! It is my dream to be able to make a difference in the lives of orphans - here, in Africa and wherever else God will lead, one at a time or by the thousands... Besides our 4 amazing biological children Nathalie (24), Jeremie (22), Leilani (18), Kylie (10), we've taken on a beautiful foster child - Shayden (7) permanently and are open for more... We also have a Ugandan son, Richard junior (23) who we met for the first time in 2010 and fell in love with (after sponsoring him for years) and a Ugandan daughter Praise (27) who I met and fell in love with during a trip to Uganda in 2011. Herenui (37) and Maitua (36) have also been part of our family for many years years now - since we met them as orphaned teenagers in French Polynesia. We are blessed with an international family and loving it!
