Rachel Cedergren is excited to serve as a teacher with Mission Aviation Fellowship at Hillcrest School in Papua, Indonesia. She will use her experience and training to provide a quality education for the children of other missionaries serving in the area.
Rachel grew up as a missionary kid in Nampa, Idaho, the daughter of missionaries Darryl and Debbie Cedergren, also serving with MAF. She accepted Christ as her savior at a young age and continued to develop her faith through Sunday school, AWANA, VBS, youth group, and fellowship with other strong believers in her church and community. When she was eight years old, she discovered her passion for helping people. That was when she knew that she wanted to work for the Lord as some sort of missionary. Rachel graduated from Victory Charter School and then moved to Salem, Oregon, to attend Corban University. There, she earned a degree in Secondary Education with a double major in Biology.
One of Rachel’s favorite Bible verses comes from 1 John 4:16, “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” She is eager to continue trusting the LORD with her life as she commits to serving as a teacher at Hillcrest School. Rachel brings a unique perspective and understanding to the classroom which she is eager to share with her students. She is thrilled to be able to invest in a new generation of missionary kids and the community in Papua, Indonesia.
MAF missionaries raise support for a pooled fund out of which MAF covers salary, housing, benefits, and staff-related ministry expenses. MAF exercises discretion over the use of missionary support in the exercise of its mission and care of its staff.
