Hana is a missionary in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Having grown up in a Christian home, her dad and mom have been big influences in her life. She taught for several years in the US before being led to move to Santa Cruz and teach. Through a friend at church, she heard about SAM and the need for teachers at the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center (SCCLC). Having become disillusioned with teaching, she had almost given up on the profession completely. However, through a 10-day trip to Santa Cruz, the Lord revealed His plans for her there and rekindled her passion for teaching.
Several years after landing in Santa Cruz, she is now serving as the elementary principal at the Learning Center. Her desire is to see the students and their families, and the SCCLC faculty know and love Christ. When she’s not working at the school, she enjoys finding pleasure in the simple things of life – morning walks, fresh flowers, and naps.
