After serving in Fellowship Greenville's student ministry for several years, in June of 2015, the Lord called Jessica Arellano into full-time ministry in La Vega, Dominican Republic, to serve with T.E.A.R.S. Ministries (True Evangelism Always Requires Sacrifice) alongside Rod and Twila Davis.
T.E.A.R.S. works with the poorest and most vulnerable Dominican and Haitian communities. Jes's job as she acclimates to culture and climate is to build relationships. After two years, Jessica continues to work alongside leadership of El Camino Church to love and equip the body and be a bridge between the North American teams and Maria Auxiliadora.
She has only just begun her ministry and continues to look for ways to build relationships with women in both La Vega and Maria Auxiliadora, a barrio in La Vega. Her passion for discipleship, teaching, and equipping women and students continues to be her sweet spot as she wholeheartedly believes that nothing will stop this next generation from changing the world!
Way to Pray: TEARS ministry is expanding in all areas: High school, water project, soccer project, and local church. Pray as Jes has taken a leadership role in planning and supporting ministry in these areas.
