Denise felt a call on her life and came to visit from Oregon to see if she could use her gifts at Rancho Santa Marta. She said, ” I don’t speak Spanish but I am willing to learn, and I am an occupational therapist (OT). Would I be of help to your ministry?” That was over 18 years ago and she is still with us! She is a wonderful, loving young woman. The children and staff have grown to love her dearly.
