Elaine wanted too see the world beginning when her mother taught her to say, "Buenos días" at the age of four. Her mom explained that people in Mexico say that to each other every morning. Fascinated, she set out learning about the world and in her teens, cautiously dated only boys who had the same desire. True to plan, she married a man who joined the Foreign Service. Subsequently, they lived in many different countries. She became a Christian at the age to 12, and received the empowering of the Holy Spirit with the Jesus People Movement when she was 40. Since then, she has focused on bringing the Light of Jesus into dark places, setting people free of fear and superstition. She is now a "snowbird," spending summers in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and winters in Honolulu, Hawaii.
