Chasing the world’s many distractions, Patricia, a young Spaniard, found herself empty. Seeking fulfillment through sin had left her looking for real answers.
One day, in search of a new direction, she came to East-West national partner and church planting pastor Oswaldo Elias de Mattos. Oswaldo introduced Patricia to Jesus, and she knew then that she would never be the same.
Patricia decided that she needed a Savior and immediately surrendered her life to Christ.
Not long after, Patricia began attending a cell group. From the moment she walked through the door, everyone could feel her joy. She had been given new life!
As Patricia grew in her faith, she took on more responsibilities in her cell group. She brings her flute to play during worship and even leads the group time occasionally. She continues to grow through intentional discipleship with a teacher whom she now considers her best friend.
Patricia has developed into a vibrant, Christian woman who is bold about sharing her faith. She tells everyone about Jesus … especially her family. Two of her family members recently confessed Christ as their Savior because she shared the gospel message with them.
Instead of chasing sin, Patricia now chases Christ and finds fulfillment in God’s presence. She desires to be a missionary—reaching her nation and even the world with the message of salvation and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ.
