The Lord has taken Brianna from Chicago, to Russia, to Turkey, to Texas, and finally, to Fallon. She is thankful for God's faithfulness, sovereignty, and goodness in her life as well as the opportunity she has been given to work in the children's ministry. Her goal in life is that the Lord would be glorified, and she is excited to continue to see how He will use the children's ministries at Parkside to do just that.
Rochelle, her husband and their three children moved to Fallon in 1982. Rochelle's husband's uncle and aunt were the first who shared Jesus Christ's sacrifice with her in a meaningful way. They invited her to attend First Baptist Church (now Parkside Bible Fellowship), then pastored by Pastor Phil Blomgren. They, along with Pastor Blomgren, led Rochelle to understanding what faith in Jesus Christ means (Rom. 6:23; John 14:2-3) and the sure security of knowing that He will never leave us or forsake us! (John 10:29; Phil 4:7; Heb. 13:5). Since then, Rochelle has had the privilege of serving Him at Parkside for many years.
