We are happy to share today's interview with Teri Sellers! Teri has been a part of Desert Springs for over 10 years. She has been a huge part of our Care & Support ministries as she facilitates our Alzheimer's support groups. Teri has always had a passion for helping people. She was born in Chicago and her family moved to Oklahoma when she was 12 years old. Teri describes herself as someone who always moved around a lot, with 5 years being the typical length of time she would spend somewhere. She grew up Catholic and carried that belief and her involvement in the church into her adult life. In addition to being a devout Catholic Teri would watch televangelists. One that she watched would always encourage people to get involved in a local Bible believing church at the end of his message. Through that televangelist and some things she began questioning in the Catholic church she was led to start trying local evangelical churches. Though the change was somewhat traumatic Teri explains how grateful she is for that event as she came to know Jesus as her personal Savior and understood what a loving church community looked like. She was even baptized at Desert Springs! A big point Teri makes is the importance of not just attending a church but being fully involved in one. The conversation goes back in time a little bit as Teri walks us through how her 30+ year career in Alzheimer's support began. Working to help the AIDS crisis in Florida gave her an understanding for what families go through when someone in that family unit has a terminal disease. It really is a beautiful story as God revealed this specific calling to care for those affected by Alzheimer's. You will hear some great testimonies as Teri shares some stories from her time in this line of work. A few weeks after this interview was recorded Teri made the decision to move back to Oklahoma. We will miss Teri dearly and are so thankful for her time and service here at Desert Springs!
