Sharing the hope and joy I have in Jesus with others is such a sweet gift.

Freemyer, from Oakland, Florida, and sent from First Baptist Church in Orlando, is grateful for the financial and prayer support of Southern Baptists. A collegiate ministry, partially funded through the Cooperative Program, South Carolina Baptist Convention and local churches, was where she first realized that if Jesus was the most important part of her life, then she would talk about Jesus with everyone.

She spent two summers as a student missionary in Prague, Czechia, where she learned to love the nations and share the gospel. After college graduation, she went back as a two-year International Mission Board Journeyman, supported by Southern Baptists’ gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®, which sends 100% of all receipts to the mission field. She now returns to her ministry in Prague as a newly appointed long-term missionary apprentice.

“Sharing the hope and joy I have in Jesus with others is such a sweet gift,” Freemyer said. “Thank you to everyone who has and will join me in the work through prayer, support and/or going.”
