Suzanne Crocker's Bio:
Suzanne Crocker grew up as a missionary kid in Central America. She attended Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, where she studied to become a nurse. At nineteen years of age, she did a short term mission trip to Africa. She fell in love with Africa and God confirmed His call for her to be a missionary there. Two years after this trip, Suzanne married her college friend, John Crocker, who also had felt God leading him to Africa.

They quit seminary early, eager to begin their missionary adventure. After eight months in the field, they realized the wisdom of further training and returned to finish their education. During this time they adopted their first two children, Sarah Joy and Rebekah. After seminary, they were accepted by the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention for a special two-year program before beginning their work as career missionaries.

Through times of rejoicing, embarrassment, and grief, Suzanne’s sense of humor and God’s grace pulled them through and taught them many lessons applicable to Christians across the world. They were blessed with two more children during their years in the mission field; one through adoption and the other born in answer to their oldest daughter’s prayer for another baby.
