– Why you were born at this moment in history?
– Why God placed you in your specific family?
– Why you have had the struggles, experiences, and privileges that you have had?

– That you are living … For Such A Time As This?

Laura grew up in Puerto Rico with a Jewish father and a Gentile mother. Although as a child she longed to follow her Jewish heritage, her family nominally followed the Christian tradition of her mother. She went to college in Virginia before moving to Washington, DC to pursue a successful career with Avis Rent-A-Car.
Among her successes, Laura forged new territory as a woman in management, as she held positions never before held by women. Climbing the corporate ladder, promotions transferred her to different cities. In spite of her success, something was missing in Laura’s life. She found the missing piece of the puzzle – happiness, fulfillment, peace, joy – when she had a life-changing encounter Yeshua, her Messiah. This changed her life so much that she made a career change and moved to New York to become a “missionary” to professional women, working as a spiritual resource to these women, both Jewish and Gentile. She has lived in New York working with professional women for over 25 years.
Laura enjoys traveling, the outdoors, biking, swimming, tennis, and people. In addition to working full time with the Christian Embassy, ministering to United Nations diplomats, Laura has completed her Master of Divinity through the Charles Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies and volunteers with Chosen People Ministries ministering to Jewish professionals.
Darlene grew up in a nominal Christian home, but it was not until she was an adult that Darlene surrendered her life to the Lord.
Darlene was a civil servant of the United States Government for 26 years, including three years active duty in the U.S. Air Force. It was during the wake of 9/11, as a Senior Special Agent for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, that she sensed that she was being called into ministry. Having discovered that her great-grandfather was Jewish, the Lord placed a special love and burden to see Jewish people come to know Jesus as their Messiah.
Following her service with the U.S. government, Darlene enrolled in the Charles L. Feinberg Center, where she earned her Master of Divinity degree in Jewish Studies. She now serves as a full-time missionary with Chosen People Ministries in the greater New York/New Jersey area.
Darlene enjoys music and was a worship leader. She likes outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking and going to New York Yankees baseball games.
