Arlene and her husband Darryl are both retired and love to care for their grandchildren and countless animals.

She is an active part of NW Hills Church teaching Sunday School and VBS and serving at camps. She has served on 27 mission teams over 18 years that include Mexico, Haiti, Honduras, Kenya and Uganda.

She first went to Huruma alongside Suzan Bellis in Feb. 2005 when the school was just a nursery school.  She has returned with Suzan  to Kenya a total of 10 times and looks forward to going again in the future.

“God took me out of my comfort zone when He first called me to the mission field about 18 years ago. I have a heart for children’s ministries. When asked to join the Huruma HOPE board I knew it would allow me to continue serving the children and families of the Huruma HOPE and its community.”
