Volunteer – Newsletter Print and Distribution

Misty joined Simplicity Ministries® in 2002, volunteering her time as an office assistant.  She is currently responsible for the printing, folding, and distribution of the newsletter each month.  Her two girls, Katie and Elizabeth, and husband, Steve, also volunteer on occasion folding the ministry’s newsletter and stuffing envelopes for the monthly distribution.  In addition, Misty handles booking airline and rental arrangements for Mike’s domestic travel.
