During her junior year in high school, Heather experienced God’s grace and surrendered her life wholeheartedly to Jesus. From that time on, she has been on a journey of learning what it means to serve and love God with all of her heart, mind, soul, and strength.
After Heather’s first mission trip to Albania in 2011, she knew she had to return. She left Albania with a heavy burden for the people of the Kenet and to pray for this Islamic nation. Throughout her yearlong missionary term to Albania in 2014, her burden to reach the unreached was amplified. She lived in the Kenet that still has many unreached people who have not heard the gospel! During this time in Albania, she was involved in teen ministry, children’s ministry, and their anti-human trafficking project.
Global Partners has appointed Heather to long-term missionary service to Albania. Her passion is to see teen and college age girls be rooted in the love of God and pursue restoration in order to freely be who God wants them to be.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn (Isaiah 61:1-2 ESV).
