Diane knew a little about Kenya from her son’s mission trips there. After participating in the Walk/Run in 2016 and reading Carrie’s book, her interest grew. A year after retiring, she decided to volunteer, helping to raise funds for Mercy’s Light. Diane worked at rummage sales, managed inventory of Kenyan items, organized the Etsy store, and contributed to newsletters. Married to Rick, she has four grandchildren and four bonus grandchildren. When not working tirelessly for Mercy’s Light Family, Diane enjoys gardening, knitting, crocheting, sewing, and trying new recipes.
