She came to Christ at an early age, and became increasingly burdened with sharing the Gospel message with a dying world.
Kathy graduated from Liberty University in 1981 with a major in Missions and a minor in Anthropology/Social Sciences. She married Bruce Omer, and the Lord led the couple to join Pioneers Mission in 1984.
They went to Bangkok, Thailand, then later to South Thailand as young missionaries. God blessed them with four children: Esther, Caleb, Hannah, and Sarah. In 1997, the family experienced great personal sorrow that left Kathy a single mom to four children. Claiming Joshua 24:15, she asked her Heavenly Father for the strength and single-mindedness to continue to walk a life of integrity and faith before her children as a testimony to the compassion and hope found in Christ.
After earning a degree in education, Kathy taught elementary and secondary school at The Master’s Academy in South Florida from 2000 to 2014. During that time, she served as teacher, Assistant to the Principal, and Middle School Dean. Her greatest joy was to lead students and parents to Christ. Kathy ministered in her home church in South Florida as the Ladies’ Bible teacher, Women’s Conference Speaker, Women in Fellowship (WIF) ministry leader, and Youth Counselor.
