West Texas Office
State Director - West Texas
As a child, I loved God the Father, but knew nothing about Jesus. Finally, when I was 23 years old, living in Dallas, I heard the gospel message. Six months later, on May 12, 1982, I told Jesus I wanted to follow Him.
I started serving with CEF in 2005, the same year I met David Johnson. His support is a blessing. We love being part of what God is doing in West Texas to take the Good News of salvation to boys & girls!
“For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”
- Psalm 18:28-30
I love working as Office Manager for CEF of West Texas, I practically grew up with CEF®. When my parents moved our family from Mineral Wells, TX to Wichita Falls in 1972 in the summertime, some nice ladies would knock on the doors of our neighborhood and invite the children to Backyard Bible Club. They mentioned that we were going to sing, have a Bible story, eat snacks and have a great time. My brother, sisters and I, plus the neighborhood kids, went and had a wonderful time. We heard the gospel, and sang songs that are still in my memory. It wasn't until I started working for CEF® that I learned what I had experienced as a child with Backyard Bible Club was an outreach of CEF®!

Media Ministry Coordinator
I was born and grew up in Shreveport, LA. I attended and graduated from LSU –Baton Rouge with a degree in Business Management and Administration. I was blessed to be born into a family that served God, so I accepted Jesus at an early age. Sunday School teachers played an important role in my life, so I value the ministry and mission of Child Evangelism Fellowship. I’m married to Gerald and we have 3 children, a son name Jonathan, a daughter name Whitney and a daughter-in-law name Mariesa. We also have our first grandbaby name James . My husband and I serve God at Colonial Church in Wichita Falls as Coordinators for our Prayer Team and members of the Response Team.
Philippians 4:6-7 - Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.

As a child I loved going to church and loved to sing the songs and memorize the bible verses. Church was a place I heard about Jesus and made a lot of new friends. But it wasn't until my teen years that I realized I hadn't fully grasped the idea of who God was. I was captivated as a young teen by God's love. His love made me feel seen, worthy, safe and filled me with purpose and identity. It was from that moment I was forever changed and wanted to pursue Jesus without restraints.
I got married in 2009 to a God-fearing man, Hiram Brito. We have 2 beautiful little girls Abrielle (Ella) & Adonai. (Addy) We are so grateful Jesus has entrusted us to disciple and raise up women who will pursue the Father's heart. Joining CEF was God-orchestrated and a step of faith on my part. Although I'm new, one thing that spoke to my heart is the mission of CEF: "Every child, Every Nation, Every Day." I want to be a part in making this statement true.
My position is the Media Ministry Coordinator and help support the local chapters in whatever ways are needed. I'm excited to see what God will do!
Fun things to know... I love meeting new people, I love to travel, my favorite color is mint green, I love sunflowers and rocky road ice cream.
