Miriam Dovald has accepted the invitation to be the new women’s, children’s and family ministries director for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference.

Miriam graduated from River Plate Adventist University in Argentina and worked for five years at the Sanatorio Adventista del Plata. Eventually their family moved to the U.S., where Alejandro and Miriam worked as a team in pastoral ministry in Washington state, Lincoln, Nebraska, and most recently in Topeka, Kansas.

Miriam has been serving as an administrative assistant since 2021 and has continued to work alongside her husband, Alejandro, who serves as the Hispanic ministries director. Miriam loves working for Jesus, serving people and spending time with their children, Arian and Nyara. “It is a big challenge for me, but I am trusting that God will be with me at each step, and He is who can make my work prospe,r” she says. “I ask for prayers because I want to be an instrument in God’s hands and sow His love wherever He puts me.”

Ron Carlson shared this about Miriam: “We look forward the many ways she will minister to the women, children and families in our conference.” Miriam officially began her in her new role on Aug. 1, 2023.
