Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Janine is a born and raised Minnesotan. She first became interested in serving internationally while on a mission trip to Costa Rica in 2012. Since then, the Lord has continued to write a story that has cultivated a heart and joy for Costa Rica. She had the opportunity to complete her undergraduate preceptorship in Costa Rica as well as volunteer as an online English Partner with LightHouse Transformation Ministries; the ministry she will now be serving with.
As opportunities and connections to Costa Rica continued to present themselves and grow over the last 10+ years, Janine’s curiosity whether the Lord may be calling her to serve overseas grew as well. In the seeking, the Lord has lovingly reminded her that He did not give us a spirit of fear and that He is the one who establishes our steps.
Prior to joining MCN, Janine worked in the field of public health. She holds a Master of Public Health degree from Saint Louis University and a Bachelor degree in Community Health Education from University of Wisconsin La Crosse. She looks forward to using her public health skills in a new context and setting to serve God in His mission.
In her free time, Janine enjoys chasing down miles on her running shoes, reading countless books, adventures with her nieces and nephews and baking an endless supply of cookies.
Pray for Janine as God guides her into this new chapter, that His light, love and peace may be known and that He may be glorified in all things.
