Teresa has been a vital part of Mike's ministry. She taught women in Haiti how to sew so they could help support their families. She also helped them get the equipment and supplies they needed. She's a professional medical transcriptionist and helps Mike with many computer-related projects.
Teresa loves children (especially her grandchildren). She also loves horses and at different times has had the opportunity to own and care for them.
