Kendall was content excelling in her career as an elementary school teacher. However, after an unexpected opportunity opened to study the Bible in Austria, Kendall’s life was turned upside-down. After one year, and then another, Kendall joined a ministry team in Hungary. It was there that she met Kurt Kendall, an American ministering as a missionary in Poland. After they married, they served together in Poland where they raised their four children. From Poland they were led to serve in Cambodia. Currently, they are working with a Bible college in the nation of Georgia.
