The LORD started moving in November 2004 – and by April 2005, she knew she was being stretched when the LORD put into motion a plan that required moving – for the first time in her life – more than five miles from the place she called home. The LORD promises, “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My Name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold and inherit eternal life.” Matthew 19:29. Standing on that promise, she sold her cozy mobile home, left family, friends, and a good job and moved to Reno/Sparks to help plant a church (Horizon Christian). She is administrator for Horizon Christian Church.
