My name is Leydi and I am 25 years old. I’m from a village called Agua Blanca (White Water). 5 years ago I joined the Missioners of Christ community. It has been an extraordinary experience encountering Christ himself through serving others. I initially came to the community with the desire to bring the Gospel to many more people but also to discern my vocation.
Today, God has been taking me through a process of discovering my calling to serve and give completely of myself to the smallest and most marginalized groups in the world: people who live at social risk, or vulnerable situations such as abandonment due to broken families and addictions, especially teens and children. Currently, I work as a volunteer hoping to respond to the voice and the thirst for the love of Christ shown in each of them, because – like Saint John Bosco – I think there are no “bad young people”, only young people who need to be told they are good. Seeing the need and thirst for love with which they wander through life, each moment by the grace of God, I strengthen my commitment to Strengthening my relationship with God comes first, but I also have discovered the need to continue with my academic preparation, so that with God, it is necessary to make their voices heard even more so in the middle of today's society. That is why I have begun my studies for a bachelor’s degree in Psychology: better understanding and knowing the needs and behaviors of each human being and methods of how to respond to them will allow me to better serve those in need.
