I grew up in the Lutheran church and significantly grew in my faith around age 14 through attending youth camps. I then proceeded to lead on these camps and a number of different mission trips before starting FDM after completing an honors in spirituality and social work. I have completed OM’s pre-field training as well as the training necessary to specifically conduct the FDM program.
