Ellie came to know Christ as her Savior in September of 1987. Immediately after becoming a Christian she sensed a call from God. Her heart absolutely ached to be in Christian service. Soon thereafter she began typing dissertations for students at Grand Rapids Baptist College & Seminary [now Cornerstone University and Grand Rapids Theological Seminary] in Grand Rapids, MI. She came on board at CBM in November of 1991—working at CBM continues to be a joy and blessing in her life. Ellie maintains responsibility for the day-to-day mailing needs of the Mission and oversees larger mailing projects, such as financial appeals and the Contact newsletter, as well as assisting with reception duties and accounts receivable.
