Ellen Mae Duremdes
Missionary to the Philippines
My role is to train young people or adults to lead the Olympians in a local church who will avail this program.
I grew up in a Christian home and my parents are serving the Lord at Word of Life. I came to know Christ when I was 7 years old, and back in May 2008, I dedicated my life to the Lord to serve Him full-time. I spent two years at Word of Life Bible Institute where I grew closer to the Lord and had a deeper understanding of His purpose in my life.
Like any other young adult, I also have my plans but God has other plans for me. Instead of worrying about helping my family's needs and following my own selfish desires, I saw the great need for full-time workers in the field. The Lord reminded me of my commitment 13 years ago when I gave my life to Him and impressed my heart to answer His call.
I love to see children have a personal relationship with Christ and my passion and desire is to be able to train young people to have the burden to reach their generation with the Gospel.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
