Welcome I’m Sheila, happily married over 40 years, with 2 home-schooled adult children, and 9 wonderful grandchildren!
I am also a missionary, blessed to live in the beautiful land of Italy, going on 30 years. I have a passion for the Word of God, and discipling others to walk in his ways and give their all in devotion and consecration to him. For He alone is worthy of all.
Along my long and varied path of shoestring-budget missionary living, I’ve moved over 50 times (stopped counting after 50). And lived in everything from tarantula-infested campers to tents. And even in an old chicken coop, so cozy the chickens kept returning! I’ve gone without, been abundantly blessed, and learned countless lessons along the way.
And in serving him, I have found purpose, and a joy and fulfillment I would never have dreamed possible.
From the time Christ first healed our lives and shaky marriage, Hubby and I yearned to go wherever he would lead. Across the waters, down through the valleys, or on mountains high. No sacrifice was too great for the One who gave us so much.
We went out on faith and faith alone. No promised support, no money, no income. Just 2 kids, 8 suitcases, each other, and a God who was even bigger and greater than we could have ever thought or imagined! And we’re still here serving nearly 30 years later, because he is faithful.
It’s an honor for me to have you here, and I hope you’ll take a moment to introduce yourself!
