Roberta's journey to Malawi began in 2007 when she became involved in a multi-church based HIV/AIDS ministry in Baltimore, HopeSprings. In 2009 she went on a two-weektrip with that group to work alongside nationals ministering to those infected and affected as a result of the AIDS pandemic.She was forever changed - her heart and mind captured with both the joy and the massive needs of Malawi's precious people. A year later, she returned for 9 weeks to discern what she knew to the God's calling to leave her employment and serve God's people in full-time ministry. With a giant leap of faith in our Great God, she did just that, and now humbly anticipates the wondrous things God has in store as she serves in Malawi on this amazing God-venture!
For most of Roberta's worklife, she sang professionally in the US and Canada, both as a soprano soloist and with her father, Robert Nagel, as the Nagel Duo, performing music for voice, trumpet and piano. Roberta is the mom of two young men, Dane (25) and Logan (21), sister to 3 beloved siblings, and grateful friend to those many God has blessed me with.
