A young Christian from South America is preparing to serve God as a missionary half a world away in Asia.
Marcia Gonzalez has always wanted to be a missionary since growing up in a Christian home in Argentina.
Now she’s hoping serve in Japan long-term after recently spending time there teaching English.
The 22-year-old is planning to return to Japan next year after she completes her degree, majoring in teaching.
Operation Mobilisation reports Marcia is using her preparation time in Argentina to inspire a mission focus in others.
She says Christians do understand that mission is for everyone, not just those who go to the field.
Financial support for missions isn’t common in Argentina, but Marcia says God has provided the funds she requires in just six months, by touching people’s hearts in almost 40 churches in her homeland.
