Construyendo Corazones

I started working, laying brick, for the construction of the school Vida & Esperanza 12 years ago; then I was part of the construction of the Próximos Pasos School as well. Through out this time I was able to work with servant teams and national volunteers. I learned about love, friendship and service. One day Jeff Sprecher approached me and we talked about how much time had passed since I started working for MI. He asked if I would consider transitioning from my job to join Mission Impact as a full-time staff member. I immediately said yes. My heart for my community, La Libertad continues to grow.

I am volunteering at my church, l teach once a week in the local public schools at La Libertad and a small village named Buena Vista, also another village named El Rejón, near the town of Sumpango; I am also leading Bible Club there every Thursday.

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you
so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so
that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.”
John 15:16
