Diane knew a little about Kenya from her son’s mission trips there. She participated in the Walk/Run in 2016 and purchased Carrie’s book. Once she started to read, she could not put the book down. Her interest grew and she decided to volunteer after being retired for a year. She helped raise funds for Mercy’s Light, the crisis pregnancy center, working at the rummage sales, keeping inventory of Kenya items brought back to sell in the U.S., and organizing the Etsy store. She also worked on newsletters and collected shoes.
Diane is married to Rick and has four grandchildren and four bonus grandchildren. When she isn’t working tirelessly for Mercy’s Light Family helping with our administrative tasks and Etsy store, she enjoys gardening, knitting and crocheting, sewing, and trying new recipes.
