Laura’s Story: Leaving Everything Behind to Serve as a Missionary on a Native American Reservation

Shortly after Laura got married, she and her husband quit their jobs, sold their private practice in Denver, and moved to a Native American Reservation in Montana – where they lived as missionaries for two years.

Laura joins the 1 Girl Revolution podcast to talk about her experience, the courage it took to leave everything behind and move to the Reservation as a missionary, the beauty and pain she experienced and witnessed, what it’s like living on the Res, the people they got to know and serve, and so much more.
