Wendy Palau shoulders a burden for the lost, born out of her own experience of living apart from Jesus Christ for the first 24 years of her own life.

Each campaign features a strong focus on meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the least in this world.

Wendy and Andrew have been married 19 years and her primary job is raising their three children: Christopher, Jonathan, and Sadie.
