About Anika

I was born into a Christian home - my dad is a pastor/farmer and my mom stays at home. I was saved after my family went to a Billy Graham crusade. I talked to my mom a few days after and she explained the gospel to me again, it was at that point in my life that I accepted Jesus as my savior. I was 6 years old.
Growing up my family was always in church, I was the "good little girl" at church but at home I was not so good. I was rebellious and had hard at heart.
It was not until my high school years that the Lord started to work on my heart, He using a lot of things to get ahold of me. When I finally started to pay attention to what He was saying, I realized that I needed to make the faith of my parents my own and not just something that I did every Sunday and Wednesday. The Lord led me to WOL and I have grown so much! I had a discipler who was not afraid to ask the hard questions, to call me out on the anger and bitterness I had been carrying for so many years. My first year at Word of Life was such a growing experience! I went on to second year, after second year I moved to the Dominican Republic as a Cross Cultural Intern with Word of Life for two years. The Lord used that time to show me how selfish and prideful I am. I learned that anytime you work with people it is messy, there is beauty in brokenness, everyone has a story, and everyone needs the love of Jesus. It was during my time in the DR and after, when I moved home, that my desire is to meet people where they are at and to love them. I want to be a part of change. I want to be a part of watching people fall in love with Jesus. I want to come alongside and be an encouragement. I want to disciple. As I have spent time in prayer and in God’s word I know that moving to Portugal is the next step for me. I will be able to us the gifts that I have for the office and also hands on working in the local church, with the missionaries and being involved in camp. I am so excited about what God has in store and am really excited to share this journey with you!



Acts 20:24 "But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God."
