Sandi began serving with Harvesters International Missions (HIM) in March of 2007 after serving with the ministries of Teen Missions International and AIDS Orphans and Street Children.
Her previous ministry focus was in Sub-Saharan Africa and Cambodia and in her new capacity as Assistant to the Director; she will continue to assist with work in Africa and India.
Some of her immediate responsibilities include helping put teams together, seeking grant opportunities and assisting with the web page and routine office procedures. Additionally she is helping to schedule church visits and mission conferences.
She works out of the home office of HIM located on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. Her extensive previous experience taking adults and teenagers on mission trips will assist her in her new capacity.
She is a graduate of the University of Utah with Missionary certification credits from Moody Bible Institute. Prior to becoming a missionary, she worked as a teacher, swim coach, restaurant manager and an accountant.
In the six months since coming to Harvesters International Missions, she has worked closely with Ed Hirshman to seek new ministry partners and share the ministry with those in the community. As the ministry continues to grow, she hopes to be able to work closely with our staff from India, Kamlesh and Ranu and assist with sharing their ministry in the U.S. in preparation for their visit in 2008.
Sandi says, “India is new territory for me, but I feel this may be part of the reason the Lord redirected me to Harvesters International Missions. Since India is one of the ministry’s newest ventures, I find it exciting to be on the ground floor of ministry to see how the Lord can use me.”
In Cambodia, she was part of starting a summer camp for national teens, a Cambodian Bible School and a regional ministry headquarters for South East Asia. Sandi wants to thank those of you who pray for her and those who support her financially.
She is glad to have transitioned to Harvesters International and its vision to help support national missionaries. Sandi has already proven to be a valuable part of the Harvesters’ team. Her tireless work ethic and compassion are humbling and a welcome addition to the Harvesters’ family.
