Buna! (Hello!) My name is Amy, and I am half of the California portion of the team travelling to Romania with HUMC. I
am so excited to come alongside this incredible team and serve the least of these with them in Romania. God first called me to Romania in 2002 when I was only sixteen years old. I left a part of my heart in the country that year and have had to return over and over since then. More recently, I feel like God has called me to help prepare and lead teams traveling to Romania.
Back home, I am an 8th grade English teacher. Most people call me crazy when they learn that I teach junior high, but I absolutely love it! Junior high kids are certainly a different breed of human, but I love diving into their little, complex worlds and trying to help them figure out how to navigate this thing we call life.
I love to travel, be as high up in the sky as possible, and experience new things. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories, yet I really am an introvert--I need my alone time to recharge (a social introvert I believe they call it--whoever "they" are!).
I like long walks in the evenings, good, deep conversations, sushi, and random adventures (oh wait...this is a ministry bio, huh? Ooops!). I love Jesus. :)
I recently retired from a thirty-three year teaching career. The majority of those years have been spent with kindergarten children. Although, I won’t be in the classroom any longer, my heart and passion is for children – both in the United States and Romania.
I love to lose myself in books. I’ve been known to sacrifice sleep in order to finish a good book! I enjoy traveling and am fortunate to be able to go to Israel with friends from my church in October.
A ‘perfect’ day for me would consist of coffee, donuts, potato chips, books, and a jigsaw puzzle with a beautiful view of the ocean. Maybe I’ll just try that in my retirement!
I currently own and operate my design consulting business, and over the years have been using a portion of the proceeds from each project to raise funds for this type of work. I am also blessed to be the wife of Dustin Musser who is the executive director at Camp Hebron. We have two boys ages 4 and 3 who inspire and teach us daily.
I have a secret history of singing opera, hand modeling, and so many other random oddities you'd probably think I was making them all up. I'm just so thankful that God has made me both fearfully and wonderfully and that even when I think there is nothing usable in me, He shows me I am far from wrong. What a mighty God we serve!?
to meet the children in Romania because I have a heart for children and my passion is to share God's love and show children that there is HOPE and FREEDOM in the Lord! I hope that God can use me in that way while in Romania. That is why I feel called to this mission!
I have been married to the love of my life, Rich for almost 18 years. Together we have five children ages 16, 15, 13, 9 and 4. My oldest two children, Austin and Cheyenne will be a part of the mission’s trips this summer. I am very proud of them hearing God’s call to serve. I work part-time in the program department at Camp Hebron. I love being a part of Christian camping ministry. It is my heart and passion to also show children the love of God through creation.
I studied visual arts for many years back in Pittsburgh. I love to do anything involving art! I love photography, crafts and anything I can make with my hands. Paint and glitter are my favorites!
I also love superheroes, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and any other kind of geeky lore! I guess you can see why I am well suited to work in children's ministry!
I'm so excited about our Partnership with Children To Love and to see how God's plan unfolds for our team. I can't wait to meet the children of Romania and to experience the unexpected.
I'm a photographer and I own a small studio in Lykens. I love working with people and capturing memories for them that will last a lifetime!
Working out is one of my favorite things to do. I love practicing yoga, doing zumba and I'm also part of a bootcamp group. I love to travel and spend time with my friends & family. I have an extreme phobia of birds. I know, weird right? I really love snickers & taking pictures. I can't wait to share my pictures from Romania with all of you!
I am the mother of three beautiful children, Hailey (7), Lucas (6), and Coleman (19 mo.). My husband Wesley and I are astounded daily at their ability to teach us how to love and inspire us to be better followers of Christ.
I am a Girl Scout leader for my daughter’s troop and an avid cheerleader for the kids’ soccer and softball teams. I love getting caught up in a good book, especially while soaking up the sun at the beach and my favorite vacation spot is anywhere in the woods with the camper and my family.
I live at Camp Hebron and I work in the kitchen as a kitchen assistant. I am homeschooled and I have four other siblings. I have a 16 year old brother, Austin who is going on the India trip at the end of June. I have a sister Maddy, who is 13. Savannah who is 9. And Willow who is the youngest and is 4.
What some people don’t know which, I find interesting, is that I was born on February 29th. It means that I was born on leap day! So I am actually 3 years old! I also play the guitar and sing. I also really like to serve with disabled children. My heart goes out to them the most.
I really like Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also really like frogs. They’re my favorite type of animal. And The Walking Dead is one of my favorite TV shows, The Following is too! I really like crime investigation movies/books/shows. What I am mostly scared of is thunder and lightning and spiders.
