(33) Towards the Year of Faith: Marie Relucio

[As we move toward the launch of the Year of Faith, we asked our Young Fulltimers to share their faith journey. Read their stories in their own words]

My missionary life is God’s beautiful way of making all things new for me – everyday. I thought I have reached a dead-end because of wrong choices I made in my life. But God found my lost soul.

His grace and mercy brought me out of a life of unfaithfulness to a life of amazing faith experiences. In 2007, on my first day in my first mission area, God’s promise was “You will see greater things than these.” (John 1:50).

It has been five years since, and God continues to keep His Word. This is why God has called me to be a missionary – “to see greater things”, so that everyday, I can speak of how Jesus, who is The Life, has given me the best life ever. Thanks be to God, I am still living it!
