Let’s bring in the New Year with Theresa in the Hot Seat.
I have known Theresa since I was in AIM in 1992, and yet I don’t feel like I’ve ever really gotten to know her. I regret that. I wish that I would’ve taken more time when I came back to Lubbock in 2006 … but I let my own awkwardness get in the way.
I know a few things about her though …
She loves her family … people … and especially children. She’s worked on several foreign fields. She’s worked with the children’s home in Lubbock and now Cozumel. I know that she adapts well on a foreign field. I’ve read her blog (http://www.denniswilson.com/theresa/) and I know that she did her best to have some familiar foods for her family on Thanksgiving. That takes some effort in a place like that.
She is devoted to whatever her heart attaches too. She did so much for our little church group. We didn’t realize how much until she was gone. I don’t know how she found the time to do it all, but she did.
She searches the Word … wanting to learn more about her Creator … and sharing that knowledge with others. She is a good woman … with a huge heart.
Theresa … I know you are busy, but if you have the time please tell us a little about yourself and your work in Cozumel. What is a typical day like for you? If you have any free time what do you do with it? How involved are you with the work at the children’s home? How do you adapt to such a challenging environment when working on a foreign field?
