Snapshots from LTI’s 20th Anniversary Celebration

September 23, 2023

The work we do at the Springs Rescue Mission is hard work. Our doors never close, and our team takes the brunt of the weight of people who are struggling. We invited LTI to create soul care days for our team three times a year. Personally, it’s saved my life and my ministry at the Springs Rescue Mission. The work LTI does is transformational and it’s very important work.”

Travis Williams, Chief Development Officer at Springs Rescue Mission

“It’s taken 15 years for me to become a contemplative person. LTI met me when I was in a desert and they’ve impacted me more than any other ministry I’ve encountered. It changed my life and I am a transformed person because of LTI.”

– Trish Marston, Selah East intern

Selah-West Faculty

Mitzi started her professional life as a high school social studies teacher. She and her husband Jerry then served cross-culturally for ten+ years, living abroad first in India and then Kurdistan, N. Iraq. In addition to being a Spiritual Director, she now serves as a Formation and Care pastor in her local church in Houston, TX. She has graduated from LTI’s Selah Spiritual Direction training as well as LTI’s Emmaus Formational Leadership Program.

Mitzi enjoys engaging conversation, reading fiction, doing jigsaw/crossword puzzles, ocean gazing and exploring the world with Jerry through food and travel.

God has two main callings in Mitzi’s life: to care for those who care for others and to be a guide in helping others have a healthy relationship with the Trinity – recognizing God’s loving presence and activity in their lives and how to faithfully respond.

Selah was a transformative experience for me – allowing the contemplative within to emerge and to beautifully co-exist with my extraverted personality.
