Hi! I’m Chhem Thida, 21 years old. I’m studying Bank and Finance at RULE University in PP, for 3rd year. I’m a Finance Coordinator at DOVE currently. I have been working with DOVE since 2017. I started by volunteering as a Program assistant in 2017 and then I also worked as an Admin Part-time staff. Well, I pretty love what I’m doing with DOVE. I have learnt a lots and have improved myself by working with DOVE. I was a formal student at YESIC of DOVE program since I was 17 and I could speak English better and knew how to use a computer at that time. After I graduated from high school in 2016, I started to volunteer with DOVE. I was so grateful with DOVE and my elders here that gave me a chance to know and serve God. I knew God by studied Onyx program and Devotion Meeting with my colleagues. This is how my life flows with DOVE. Lastly, I’m so pleased with my work currently and can’t wait to see the blessing from GOD in our Christianity life.
I am a follower of Christ and have been for 45 years. I am Idaho born and bred, and now live 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 was also an independent contractor with Microsoft teaching ESL to new international employees and provided 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 needed training.
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 cross country skiing, hiking, biking, reading, walking my dog and spending time with my family.
Hello, my name is Moudy Rahardjo, but people call me Moudy. I was born and raised in a Christian household in Indonesia (in the Capital City of Central Java Province, Semarang City). I graduated with a bachelor of economics degree, studying Management, with an emphasis in Human Resource Management. Before that, I worked part-time at Rhema Radio Semarang, a gospel centered radio station, and have been working and serving there for more than 4 years. Other than studying and working, I also served and volunteered at my local church (GKMI Gloria Patri Semarang), and was actively involved in the youth community. My hobbies include reading, watching movies, traveling and photography.
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 in the blessings with the people that I’m meeting here as well as get more practical and spiritual experience during this program.
Ms. Moudy Rahardjo
