Rebekah Foxen was born in 1983 to Pastor Wayne and Carol Laitinen in Toledo, Ohio and spent most of her childhood in Oklahoma City. Becky attended Luther Preparatory School and there met her future husband, Benjamin. After her first year at Martin Luther College, she nannied for a year in Germany. In 2006, Becky graduated from MLC, married Ben, and moved to the Czech Republic where they both volunteered in an ELS mission school during one school year. Four years and two kids later, Ben graduated from the Seminary in Mequon and the four Foxens and their 8 suitcases made the trip to the middle of Siberia in Novosibirsk, Russia. God blessed them for 6 years in Russia with rich friendships, valuable experiences, and opportunities to share Jesus and grow in faith. During their last year in Russia, God graced the Foxens with their third child. Ben, Becky, Levi (9), Kirsi (7), and Katya (almost 2) moved to Peoria, AZ in September of 2016 and are quickly feeling at home by God's mercy.
