God has designed your life with purpose. If you are a follower of Jesus and don’t think you have anything valuable to give, think again. God has equipped you with unique gifts and experiences that nobody else has. When you use those talents and gifts for the purpose that God intended them, it brings fulfillment and meaning to your life. At SI, we talk about God’s specific purpose for our lives using the term “calling”.

Discovering God’s call is at the heart of SI’s ministry. It is not simply something that we do, but it is a core identity of who we are. Each of our staff missionaries have their own unique stories of God’s calling in their life. Today you will be hearing from Marlyn Aracena, one of our Education site leaders in Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic. Like all of us, she is simply an ordinary person who has been called by an extraordinary God to make a difference in the lives of others.

We pray that Marlyn’s work would encourage you to press in deeper to God’s unique call on your life and to consider partnering with the Gospel-centered work happening at the Mata Gorda preschool.
