After 6 months of traveling, journaling, teaching, Friday night youth clubs in Hollywood, road trips, hurricane relief, clown skits and weeding gardens in South Africa I came back to Norway.
I came to YWAM Skien a few weeks later. There I was a part of the DTS staff for two years, and got to see and follow young people find their identity in God and go out in missions.

In 2008 I moved on to administration and office work, planning events and outreaches and assisting anyone with printer trouble...

YWAM has taken me to USA, Mexico, South-Africa, Poland, England, Ethiopia, Turkey, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Romania, Switzerland, India, Estonia, Sweden, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia and all over Norway.

I have laughed and cried, prayed and waited, preached, translated, organized, booked tickets, read books and written articles, listened, made numerous excel spreadsheets, loved, given, but received more in return, tore down and built up (literally), baked, sailed, camped and hiked, studied the Bible, heard teaching, done dishes, danced and walked and so much more!
Today marks my 5 year anniversary in YWAM, and I am SO thankful for the past five years: For all I have experienced, the lessons I have learned, the people I´ve met and the places I´ve visited. Thankful most of all to God for His faithfulness, patience and love, but also thankful for all of you who have been a part of the adventure this far!
PS. I would love it if you shared a memory from the last years!
