Leigh is 23 years old and loves to serve people and experience new cultures. She has an associate’s degree and a Certificate in Ministry from Highlands College. After graduating she was connected to DFM through a friend and quickly fell in love with the vision. She has spent two years with the DFM internship and believes that her best next step in life is to move to Guatemala to serve with DFM.
“It’s crazy to think that growing up I always dreamed to live in another country and serve with a non-profit but never thought it would really happen. Now that it is actually coming true, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I don’t feel worthy or capable but I know God has given me a heart to travel and help those in need and I know I can not do this on my own. Through Jesus, I know he will sustain me.” I’m just a small town girl who wants to show the world that God can use anyone…all we must do is be willing.”
Leigh refuses to “live a normal life” She wants to say yes, face her fears, chase her dreams and depend on God for the impossible.
