Highlights of My Life Since High School:
In 2005, my husband and I founded Eternal Life International with a goal to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the nations and regions that have never heard the gospel. We ministered in some of the most dangerous areas in the world including Pakistan and the militant muslim armies in Mindanao, Philippines. Over the years, we have witnessed over 100,000 people receive Christ and have seen the Lord perform hundreds of miracles in our crusades. My husband passed away 3 years ago and plan on continuing to preach and teach in churches, retreats, conferences in the USA and internationally.

Wonderful to read about your life. Just as in the water, you are still ahead of me! (I think that the only time I won races was when you sat them out!! But I didn’t mind coming in second to someone who was so good!) Look forward to seeing you this weekend.
What a wonderful and inspiring life you have had this far. Keep up your marvelous works. I hope I see you this weekend.
Leslie what a rewarding life you have lived. I am awed at what you have done. I am thrilled you are continuing to bring the voice of Our Savior to others.
What a wonderful service you and your husband unselfishly provided to others! You should be so proud as I am sure you are of your children! Look forward to seeing you at the reunion!
Leslie,what a meaningful and exciting life you lead.
That little grandson looks like a pistol!
Hope to see you in Sept.
Awesome Leslie! You have a beautiful family.
