Marta has been to India twice. She is currently a senior in high school in North Carolina.
We talk with Marta about being a senior in the current COVID-19 epidemic with graduation and her senior year. She was planning on going on a third trip this year but the travel ban has canceled this summer's trip.
Marta is saddened that she won't be able to go visit her friend in India this summer but remains optimistic that God will work things out for the good of those who love him.
When asked what something that most people know about her she said her favorite animal is a cow. In fact when on a mission trip in India someone offered her a cow! But she didn't think it would get through Customs...
Marta shared her story about how she came to be in a relationship with Jesus and how that led to her wanting to be a small group leader and go on mission trips.
Being a gymnastic teacher, she said one of her favorite moments from her trip is when they were organizing a children's event where kids were dancing. She described the moment of joy when all their hands went up and they were dancing with that "little kid shrills!"
Marta described her various mission trips, what they did, the ministry, the memories, and the stories she brought back with her. If you are considering going on a mission's trip as a teenager you need to listen to Marta's story.
She believes that missions have changed her life as God has revealed how we can love each other's with unconditional love the way that God has loved us.
"If I can love someone that a whole world away than I can love someone in my everyday life." - Marta
