“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” (Philippians 4:6 – 7)
Pam serves in the offices of Rural Compassion, helping to keep everyone on the same page. She has served Rural Compassion from near the very start. As office staff, Pam often stays back when others are sent on adventures across the country.
“One time, a pastor and his family of four children stopped by the office and picked up some supplies for an outreach they were leading in their town and Rural Compassion got the chance to bless them. We gave them their own backpacks full of school supplies and new shoes and other essential items for daily living. And the mom just broke down in tears. ‘My kids have never had brand-new backpacks.’
“Being able to be a part of that, to give to them, it was a blast.”
“I have seen Rural Compassion grow from the beginning and how it has stayed the course, being intentional on serving the rural, out-of-the-way places. Bringing about lasting change takes a long time, it is not a quick fix, but Rural Compassion is breaking cycles of poverty and tangibly giving hope.”
Outside of the office, Pam and her husband enjoys trips to the lake and spending time with their family.
