She loved being a mom and in 1978 she and Albert were “House Parents” to Navajo Indian children in New Mexico, providing them with a stable Christian home when their own family couldn’t care for them. A few years later they started their own ministry on the Navajo reservation taking care of children and single mothers who had no one to help them. Over the years in their ministry they fostered over 350 kids. They went to Washington DC to receive the Jefferson Award in recognition of their work on the Reservation.
