Christina has been a part of Fellowship Greenville since she was a young child. She grew up in FG elementary, middle school, and high school programming and even interned with FG one summer. After going on an FG short term trip to work with T.E.A.R.S. Ministries in La Vega, Dominican Republic in 2012, she fell in love with all things D.R. Over the next 4 years, she returned 3 times for a grand total of 8 months. As she experienced real life (as opposed to team life), built relationships, and continued to learn more Spanish, her love for ministry there grew.
Following her graduation from Clemson University in 2015, Christina felt the Lord calling her to officially join the T.E.A.R.S. team and work full-time in the barrios of La Vega. Christina headed to the field in May of 2017. She is currently working as the Missions Administrative Assistant for T.E.A.R.S. Her heart to build relationships, work alongside Dominicans, and expose the hope found in Jesus will help shape what her days look like outside of her administrative tasks. Christina believes that every day spent in D.R. with her T.E.A.R.S. family and Dominican friends is a day well spent.
Christina loves Fellowship Greenville, and FG is proud to be sending her to D.R. to be a part of what God is doing there.
Way to Pray: Pray for Christina that she would be dedicated to her study of Spanish and that she will be able to learn well and fast and also stay faithful to learning. Pray that Christina would continue to strengthen her relationship with God by making staying in the Word a priority. Finally, please pray that TEARS would care well for each other and their community and that the Gospel would be first and foremost in all they do.
