Jonathan A. - Brazil 2010-2011

“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.” (James 2:26)

My name is Jonathan. I am from Jefferson City, Missouri. I am 18 years old and just grad­u­ated from Helias High School. After being accepted into my top col­leges of choice, I wasn’t filled with the excite­ment that I was expecting. The feeling was one more of incom­ple­tion. I felt a call to do some­thing bigger than myself. That is when I decided to defer my col­lege accep­tances for a year and ded­i­cate a year of my life to ser­vice and com­pas­sion. After spending many, many hours doing research and looking at a ton of dif­ferent pro­grams, I came across Heart’s Home and I fell in love with every aspect of it. The thing that attracted me to Heart’s Home the most was reading “We are called to come back again and again to Golgotha where the Mother was standing at the side of her Son.” After reading this, I felt assured that this is where I belong.

I will begin my mis­sion this July in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. I am very excited about being immersed in the Brazilian cul­ture and becoming closer to Christ.
