About Rachel

I had the privilege of growing up as a missionary kid in the Philippines. From as early as I can remember, my parents taught me about Jesus love for me and modeled His love in their lives. At a young age I understood my need for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and chose to put my faith in Him alone for salvation.

Over the years God has been teaching me what it means to trust Him and follow His leading. As a teenager, I dedicated my life to serving the Lord during a Word of Life Philippines summer camp, and since then, God has given me many opportunities to be involved in the lives of people both through local church and international ministry.

In the fall of 2008 the Lord began opening the door for me to return to the Philippines as a full-time missionary with Word of Life Fellowship. What a joy it is to be back in a country that I have grown to love. I am thankful for God's faithful direction in my life and for the opportunity to be involved in training young men and women to know, love and serve our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Philippians 3:8 - Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
