Katherine Mosher

Katherine is a short-term missionary teacher with Mission Aviation Fellowship assigned to teach at Hillcrest School in Papua, Indonesia.

Katherine was raised in a Christian home in Snoqualmie, Washington. She spent most of her early and teen years in this small town in western Washington only relocating for college. During this time her parents had an on-going ministry in the town of Fall City as owners of a Christian bookstore called the Book Corral. While quite young, at the age of five, Katherine made a personal commitment to the Lord which was nurtured through her family, church, and visiting missionaries. At the age of 11, Katherine was baptized at Preston Baptist Church, now Raging River Community Church, and through her adolescence and college years, she was active in youth groups and campus ministries. Through these ministries, she was able to serve God by participating in many short term mission trips including house building and VBS in Mexico and campus ministry in California.

After graduating from Western Washington University with a B.A. in History and English, Katherine spent time in Seoul, South Korea, teaching ELL (English Language Learner Program), before returning to Washington to complete a masters in teaching. For six years Katherine served the students of Duvall, Washington, as a public high school teacher. In the four years following, Katherine was a teacher with MAF serving in Papua, Indonesia first at the small satellite school in Wamena and then at the main campus in Sentani. Following her experience with MAF, Katherine continued to work in Christian education in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Over the past six years, she has served as a teacher and administrator at Rio International School and Recreio Christian School. During her time in Brazil, she played an active part in her church, Union Church, and volunteered in the greater community.

Throughout her professional life and personal relationships, Katherine has seen God at work. Over the years, she has had the privilege to work with teachers and students of many different nationalities and backgrounds, and it has cemented in her heart the truth that everyone needs a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. She has seen lives changed, sometimes very quickly and dramatically, by this one decision. She looks forward to meeting new people and continuing God’s work wherever she is needed.

Katherine enjoys hiking, biking and walking in the beautiful areas where she has had the opportunity to live; traveling to visit family and friends or just learning about a different culture, and reading anything that she can get her hands on.

Katherine says that God has given everyone a promise in the person of Jesus Christ, and it is charged to us to make sure that other know about Him. She looks forward to teaching and ministering to the children and missionaries of Papua, Indonesia.

One of Katherine’s favorite verses is Isaiah 41:9-10, “I took you from the ends of the earth; from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” These verses remind her that God has a plan for our lives and will be with us in the good times as well as the trying times. All things are possible through Christ
