April was born and raised in Lynden on a dairy farm. She is a homeschool mom who had a little extra time to clean the church. She loves working with her husband of 14 years, Ted Thompson. Their wonderful daughters Becky (13) and Abigail (11) also like to work at church in KidsPlace and on the service team. In her spare time she enjoys playing sports, teaching 4-H kids, and caring for her chickens, cats, bunny, dog, and pigs.
