Interact and Encourage

Hi—My name is Leigh. I am a retired stay-at-home mom. My husband and I have 3 adult children—Natalie, Stephen & Amelia. I’m excited to be a part of the Nov 2018 Go Team to Lajastambo, Bolivia. Although I was a part of several mission trips in high school, I just recently resumed my involvement. This last February, I traveled alongside my daughter, Natalie, to Haiti to minister to orphans and school children and now am blessed to work alongside my husband, Steve, on this journey to Bolivia. I’m excited to see what God has in store as we interact with the families in Lajastambo and partner with Food for the Hungry—I pray for a servant heart. Please pray for this relationship building time as we come alongside the local community to encourage our Bolivian brothers and sisters in Christ—may we do it in the spirit of Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

In addition to this Go Team, I help facilitate a women’s Bible study group at Blackhawk, as well as mentor young moms in the Mom-to-Mom ministry. I’ve been a member of Blackhawk since moving to Madison 24 years ago.
