During this time, she had the opportunity to grow in faith and travel to many parts of the world for service work. Most notably, Kolkata, India, where she was able to spend time working in various orphanages. It was there that she fell in love with working with children and began building a strong pedagogy that having a love of Jesus and a deep faith that we can and should trust God should be intrinsic in our youth.
