I am a follower of Christ and have been for 45 years. I am Idaho born and bred now living in the Seattle area to be close to my children and grandchildren. I came to Seattle from Kharkiv, Ukraine where I taught ESL for 5 years. Before going to Ukraine I was a P.E/outdoor education instructor at George Fox University in Newberg, OR. Since returning from Ukraine, for the last 20 years, I have taught ESL at Lake WA Institute of Technology in Kirkland, WA. I also was an independent contractor with Microsoft teaching ESL to new international employees and did private tutoring. I retired from the college in June 2018 and now am "on-call" to serve the Lord by encouraging and equipping ESL teachers in various countries who haven't had access to the training that I've had.
I attend Westminster Chapel in Bellevue where I serve on the Global Impact team, the Community Impact team, help facilitate a Talk Time, and serve as a hostess for the ESOL Alpha. In my free time, I enjoy XC skiing, hiking, bike riding, reading, walking my dog and spending time with my family who lives close by me.
Hello, my name is Moudy Rahardjo, but people call me Moudy. I was born and raised as a Christian in Indonesia, to be exact, in the Capital City of Central Java Province which is Semarang City. I just graduated with a bachelor of economics degree, I was Studying Management, emphasizing in Human Resource Management. Before I got here I worked part-time at Rhema Radio Semarang, it’s a gospel radio, and I’ve been working and serving there for more than 4 years. Other than studying and working, I was also serving and volunteering at my local church which is GKMI Gloria Patri Semarang, and was actively involved in the youth community. My hobbies include reading, watching movies, travelling and taking pictures.
I really hope that during this program, I get to learn more about socializing with new people in a new environment and culture. Also, I hope that I get to share what I got to be a blessing for other people that I’m meeting here. I also hope that I will be able to get more practical and spiritual experiences during this program.
