Anastasia Rosnau was born and raised in the warm land of Phoenix, Arizona, home of her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. She grew up in a strongly Christian family that was very involved in their church community, especially because her dad is the pastor at their home church. Her love of traveling and things outdoors came from family road trips and outdoor activities such as hiking, bike rides, and playing or watching sports.
In high school, Anastasia had a few opportunities for international travel which opened her eyes more to God’s big world. Then, in college, while traveling on Concordia University Irvine’s Around-the-World Semester in Fall 2016, she felt God calling her into missions. This trip takes students to ten different countries in one semester while they take classes and serve in each country. She loved the experiences she was having and talking to different missionaries around the world only encouraged her in her calling.
Her cross-cultural experience only began to increase as she had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad in Quito, Ecuador for four months in Fall 2017 and to participate in a three-week mission trip to Burkina Faso and Togo, West Africa in May 2018. She is now thrilled to see more of what God is doing in his global church by beginning a longer-term cross-cultural ministry teaching English and religion classes in Tisovec, Slovakia.
Anastasia’s hobbies include learning languages, traveling, music, painting, playing and watching sports, hiking, and almost anything else outdoors. Please keep Anastasia in your prayers!
