Mary comes to PI with a rich history in faith-based, non-profit fundraising. Her own family’s story is even more rich, flowing with the amazing grace and Providence of God. Mary traces her spiritual legacy from Northeast India where her Grandfather became a follower of Jesus because a Welsh Missionary, Watkin Roberts, boldly shared the gospel with the Hmar people group. The missionary’s actions were bold because the Hmar were known as one of the fiercest headhunters in that part of India. Mary’s father, Rochunga Pudaite, eventually came to the USA and Wheaton College where he finished the Bible translation for the Hmar in their heart language. Mary and her husband, Dan, along with their family, currently live in Antioch, Illinois. She started her personal journey with Partners International last year as a Board Member.
