We want to take this opportunity to introduce you to Monica who will be joining the parish staff team as a SAMS Fusion Intern.
While she was still in Brazil, she sent us this message of introduction:“I was born in a big city called Belo Horizonte, in the southeast of Brazil. I am the middle of three children and my parents and siblings are still living in my hometown. At the age of 7 I surrendered my life to Jesus during a Sunday school class. Since then, I have grown to love my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. My desire is to serve him with my life and to see people everywhere to come to know his great love and compassion. After I finished high school I went to Bible College for one year with a sense that God had called me to the missionary work. However that did not happen before I went to university and studied International Relations. As soon as I graduated, I came to Ireland to improve my English not knowing that God would give me the privilege to work in full time ministry in this country, which I have been doing for the past two years. I am now looking forward to joining the church in Magheralin and Dollingstown and getting to know the congregation!”
Please pray for Monica as she settles into life among us in the Parish and encourage her with a warm welcome when you meet her.
