My parents followed God’s leading leaving everything they knew behind and began a new life of service for Him in Buenos Aires.  It was at a young age that I understood the Beautiful Gospel message through the faithful ministry of my mom. It was after one of her bedtime stories that she shared Christ love with me. I understood His love at that moment and my story began! How wonderful to know the love of a mom and dad who tenderly pointed me to Christ and His love.

Growing up on the mission field I experienced many exciting things but most of all I experienced God and His power to transform lives my own life being included. While in Argentina during a mission’s conference I answered His call on my life for missionary service. How often I thank God for a godly mother who took this call as sacred and never discouraged me in this pursuit.

In 1995 after having finished three year Bible Institute I married Kris Stout, a godly man who shared my passion for God and full time service. We followed God’s leading to the country of France and served there for 10 incredible years along with our three wonderful children, Natalia (17), Michael (14) and Luc (12) . .

In 2009 we returned to the United States to serve in our WOL Headquarters. It is now our joy to serve God’s choice servants in 69 different fields. In pursuit of preparing myself for effective member care of our worldwide missionaries I completed a Bachelors degree in Biblical Counseling and Psychology with Tennessee Temple University. Like you I am a mom desiring to find creative ways in everyday life to point my children to Christ .Our desire is to serve the Lord by serving each other, our children and fellow believers till we all reach the fullness of the measure of Christ.[/vc_column_text][button color=”gray” size=”medium” target=”_blank” url=”/speakers” border=”false” icon=”none”]Back to speakers and musicians page [/button][/vc_column][/vc_row]
