Meet Rebecca: The Basics
Rebecca Katharine Lesan
I was born in Zürich, Switzerland, have lived also in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, and in CT, MA/NH, NJ, SD, and ID, in the USA. My most frequently used toothbrush resides in Coralville, IA, but I also have toothbrushes in Bright, Ontario and in Slovakia.
Listen to the sounds in the Alps and eat fresh apricots from my cousin’s orchard.
I support the Interaction staff.
I really love to serve families crossing cultures with the truth of God’s word.
I appreciate what God is doing here.
The Bible, Megan Norton’s Belonging Beyond Borders, and Lauren Wells‘ Unstacking Your Grief Tower.
James 1:2. Inexplicably, God can actually help us to live this out!
I prefer to have a lot of quiet time.
The Red Violin. The, music, is, so, good. I can relate to the way that the story is revealed in a non-linear way. I used to also like The Joy Luck Club, White Oleander, and Disney’s Mulan, Pocahontas, and Robin Hood. (There are some parts where it’s better to guard your eyes/ears.) Nowadays I will occasionally watch an episode of The Chosen.
Hm…I like to pick out the half popped kernels.
My husband is also a TCK, from Iowa/Bratislava.
Meet Rebecca: Getting Beyond Basics
Who has been a good mentor for you? What have they done that makes them a good mentor for you?
Jesus is my best mentor. I’ve also been blessed with generous parents, committed counselors, and excellent teachers. The best mentors can help me to grow closer to God even when I’m blind to something big in my life.
What are three bucket list places for you to visit?
The gardens, homes, and villages in heaven.
What are three bucket list experiences you would like to have?
I really would like to become a mom. I would also love to become an aunt. Someday I hope to release worship song music videos in Swiss Mundart.
Who are the five people (living or dead) that you would invite to a dinner party? Why did you choose each one?
I love spending time with multi-gen families.
I would like to hear from Joseph, about how he forgave his brothers.
I value authenticity.
Disney. I appreciate how Pocahontas brought together two conflicting people groups through her love for both.
