Denise is a single women who lives with her 2 cute kitties, Pumpkin & Peaches.
As a Foursquare missionary Denise has established the 1st stage of a ministry center which is focusing on reaching the retired community & school aged children. The long term goal is to purchase & renovate a nearby building in disrepair to include an Internet cafe, bookstore and training facility to disciple believers and train leaders. This would be a Business As Mission model, reaching a cross-generational group, equipping them to see, meet their own needs in love, faithfulness & hope.

In 2002, what Karen thought was going to be a one time short term mission trip to Uganda and South Sudan, became a life time commitment when God captured her heart for the people. Karen's main focus of work until 2017 was leadership development and training children's workers in South Sudan. In February of 2017, things changed dramatically when civil war began between the South Sudanese tribes spread throughout the country, leading Karen and her team to evacuate out of South Sudan to Moyo Uganda along with approximately 1.5 million South Sudanese refugees. Today her work has expanded to the people of Moyo and many more people of South Sudan.
Over time, Karen's ministry to the South Sudanese and Northern Ugandan's has led to what is known today as Stand for Africa. The activities of Stand for Africa continue to evolve to meet the needs of the people in South Sudan and Northern Uganda. The primary focus is loving the people as the hands and feet of Jesus. We address their practical needs while equipping them to lead and make changes through seminars and the discipleship and leadership training.
Karen has partnered with Mission Dispatch to support Stand for Africa.
