Jesus said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

She served under Faith Mission in Canada from 2014 to 2018 when she requested a transfer to Ireland. Her current assignment involves ministry among children and youth and evangelistic visitation in the south-east of the Republic of Ireland.
