Andrea de los Santos was one of many children living in poverty in Sabana Grande de Boyá, Dominican Republic. Intelligent and driven, she had dreams of becoming a medical doctor—but her parents could barely afford to provide for her basic needs, let alone a good education.
When Andrea was granted sponsorship to a Christ-centered education through Colegios Cristianos Reformados (COCREF) schools, a Resonate Global Mission partner, it seemed her dreams of practicing medicine were finally in reach.
But God had a different purpose for Andrea’s education.
Discipline often has a negative connotation, but one West African teacher was transformed when she discovered she could discipline her students while still sharing God’s love.
“[Bemi* has] a real heart for her students and a heart for God,” said a missionary sent by Resonate Global Mission.
But Bemi also grew up in a culture where discipline is primarily negative and threatening.
God’s mercies are new every morning. No one believes this more than Gabriela*, who arrives at Nicaragua Christian Academy’s International campus (NCAI) at 6am each day to pray for her students before classes begin.
God often uses the intersection of our passions in ministry to make the gospel more vivid. For Lorri Scholten, those passions are teaching and translation.
Lorri serves with Resonate Global Mission and Wycliffe Bible Translators by teaching first and second grade to a small group of missionary children at Oaxaca Christian School in Oaxaca, Mexico, so other missionaries are free devote their time and attention to translating Scripture.
Growing up in a family that did not believe in God, Christianity was not on Kurt’s radar. But when he began attending Christian Academy in Japan (CAJ), where many Resonate missionaries teach, the Holy Spirit stirred inside him.
CAJ does not only teach children for missionaries. The school also attracts both local and expat students who come from non-Christian homes.
Students like Kurt.
