Dr. Celia Hernandez
Celia is a Doctor who started working with Students International in May of 2012. She is a native of Nicaragua and works in 5 rural communities, tending to approximately 300 people each month. While many people come to a consultation for a physical pain, nearly all the patients have deeper spiritual needs as well. Through her relationships built during the appointments, there is opportunity for Celia to minister and point people towards Christ. Celia is also beginning to promote a Women's Group to teach about living a healthy life through good nutrition and exercise. While they meet, she also does a small Bible study with them. Celia is married to Lauturo and they have one daughter, Cristina.
