Answering a Calling

Dr. Shannon Tucker (’96)

Seven years Shannon Tucker has called Kenya her home. She lives in a rectangular concrete house with a concrete floor. The water and electricity isn’t always on. Water storage tanks are backups when the water is turned off. It’s dirty, windy and sandy. It’s always hot. She has to drive on the left side of the road and has had to learn two languages. Yet Tucker loves what she does. “I do not believe anyone has a life that has no challenges, however, missionary life is full of many more than I ever experienced in the U.S.,” she said. Tucker serves as a missionary for CMF International.
