Brenda's early worldview was strongly shaped by her parents' immigrant experience which instilled a strong work ethic as well as high values for education and financial stability. As she completed a study on the Biblical basis for fundraising to prepare to enter into vocational ministry, her paradigm shifted from feeling like she was asking for help to being compelled to invite people to partner in God's work in the lives of others.
