Originally from Mississippi, Candace developed a love for missions as a young girl when her parents were missionaries in Central Europe for two years. During high school she spent two summers on mission in Nicaragua and Uganda respectively. After graduation Candace joined Adventures in Missions’ World Race Team. It was during this 9-month mission trip that she first visited the Philippines and knew that the Lord would one day have her return in a more permanent role. Two years later, in 2016, Candace returned to work at a children’s home where she began a learning center to help meet the developmental and educational needs of the children there.
Candace joined Agape Impact Ministries in 2018 where she is working with girls who have aged out of the orphan care system. Candace works alongside Madi Bennett to run The Mango Home.
