One Year

November 1, 2019 will mark one year since I took the role of President for Childcare Worldwide. And what a year it has been! 12 months ago I had no idea what it meant to be a CEO. I had no idea I would travel over 60,000 miles visiting ministry work all over the...

My ministry, Childcare Worldwide was on KGNW AM 820 in Seattle this week talking about the need for clean water in Kenya. What a great opportunity! I was so happy to get the word out about CCW to the Seattle market. That kind of exposure is invaluable. Michelle...

I recently made a visit to our Childcare Worldwide office in Peru. What an amazing trip! I was blessed by the kids we serve in Lima. It was yet another great reminder of the wonderful work I get to do as president of this ministry. Our work in Peru is unique in that...

What a blessing it was to visit with Childcare Worldwide staff and sponsored children in Sri Lanka and Thailand! It’s funny how expectations change when we experience something new. This was my first visit to Sri Lanka, and I thought I knew what I was going to...

Wow. What a day. I was wondering when it would happen. It happened today. God melted my heart for these kids. It’s like a connection was made. I was humbled. Brought low. He showed me how blessed I am. I still have more than a week left in Africa, but if I had...
