Missionary Monday - Meet our Contributors

Hi, I'm Jen.  I'm a missionary wife and mum in the Northern Territory of Australia, otherwise known as the Top End.  I grew up in a Christian home, and was saved at a young age.  In Bible College, I surrendered to missions, in my heart thinking I'd be a pastor's wife in NYC.  I met my husband in Bible College. Patrick had been called to Australia at the age of 6.  We joke that God called Patrick to Australia, and He called me to Patrick.  In 2004, we were able to take a survey trip to Australia, where I clearly felt the Lord calling me here.  It was a moment I will never forget.  After 2 years of deputation and a 3 year visa wait, we are "finally" here.  I have finally in quotes because it's finally in my eyes, but it was all in God's perfect timing.  Isaiah 55:8-9 are some of my favorite verses and helped me through the long wait.  I have two children,  Autumn (10) and Cody (5).  We homeschool, and I really enjoy having my kids at home (most days!).  I love photography and scrapbooking.  I'm excited to see what the Lord is going to do here and how He is going to use us.  I'm humbled that He chose our family to serve Him here.  And my prayer is that my life will be one that pleases Him.  God is good...all the time!  I also blog at Be Thou Exalted.
