Debbie used to think that in order to make a difference on a mission trip you needed to either be a doctor, dentist, clergy or a builder. All that changed after her first trip to Haiti and then was overwhelmingly reinforced when she was privileged to be a climber on the first Freedom Climb team and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Debbie is a mother of 4, baton twirling coach and a self-proclaimed “soccer Mom.” God profoundly proved that He can take an ordinary person and do extraordinary things with Him! She continues to be amazed by the support of her husband, family and friends and particularly the support and encouragement of her church, Advent Lutheran Church, in Boca Raton, Florida.
