After being introduced to The Wings of Refuge in the spring of 2006, I knew I had met my spiritual family. Lisa Marie and the Wings Intercessors introduced me to the love of God in the most tangible ways, in His Presence, Healing, Restoration, Hope, Love, and in the friendship of this family. From these life-altering relationships with God and His people, He has led me to specific places and situations to give away Jesus as I’ve been taught. The first training ground of 'how to love' was working at a residential treatment center for teenage girls, where I was daily drawing on what God was teaching me. God then led me to join Crisis Response International, where I was assigned to help open and operate a Safe House in Kurdistan for abused women. After a year and-a-half of going back and forth to Kurdistan, the Lord has led me to a more full-time position in that region. Though Wings has been my spiritual covering for years, God has now orchestrated for me to go back to Kurdistan with The Wings of Refuge as my sending organization. God really is so good!
