Fran originally hails from Indonesia, she and her parents immigrated to New Jersey when she was a little girl. Shortly after, the three of them rode a Greyhound bus across America and found themselves in the beautiful Evergreen State, which has been home for over 20 years. She currently lives in Sumner with her husband, Chris,and three young kids– Evelina, Solomon, and Leon. As a family, they enjoy hiking, camping, travelling, and spending time with family and friends. Fran is passionate about serving the Lord. She and her husband were baptized at Lake Tapps Christian Church about three years ago. Chris is a youth leader for (6th to 8th grades) and they are also both community group leaders. As a part of her mission to serve the Lord, her ministry lies in caring for the elderly and educating young children. The love of teaching young children was planted in Fran when she served in Head Start and ECEAP classrooms while a student in the Early Childhood program at the University of Washington. Synchronously, her passion to care for the sick and vulnerable stemmed from caring for her parents. Following God’s calling, she is also gradually taking classes to become a registered nurse. Fran believes that God is using these two ministries to serve her community and her future students.
