Marilyn’s story is shared from three points of view - her own, her mother’s, and a teacher’s:

“My name is Marilyn. Currently, I am studying the third year of Bachelor in Business Administration at Central American University (UCA) in Managua. My mother’s name is Gioconda and I have a two year old sister named Allison. I started studying at Colegio Centro de Fe Vida Nueva School when I was very little. I learned a lot from my teachers and classmates during my time at the school. They were a big support for my intellectual and Christian growth. Every year at the school, there were new challenges and struggles. Through these challenges I have learned about respect, perseverance, humility, service and teamwork. I learned to respect authority in the different areas and stages of my life, through the relationship with my classmates and teachers and above all, I learned to take God into account in all things I do, as He is with me at home, church, with my friends and everywhere I am and go. He is always there.”

Marilyn’s mother, Gioconda, also expresses her gratefulness to God and to Colegio Centro de Fe Vida Nueva for the education that Marilyn received through the teachers.  “They have been an example for her and taught her values and principles from the Kingdom of God in the classroom; I am thankful for their care, support and love as they not only teach values to the students but also academic excellence.”

Gloria Saballos was Marilyn’s primary teacher and she shares with us a little about transformation through the Christian education Marilyn has received. “Marilyn is a young lady who showed fast learning since she was young. Her education has been based on principles about responsibility and respect. I give thanks for Marilyn and it gives me much joy and satisfaction to see that all the effort made in the Christian schools is bearing fruit.” 

One of Marilyn’s goals is to form her own company and serve the community.  She also hopes to continue to study, to earn her Masters either in auditing, management or leadership. As Marilyn continues her education and work towards her goals, she shares: “I have tried not to divert from the path my Christ-centred education has set in me. It helps me to focus on the goals I want to achieve regardless of the difficulties it may arise.  I am confident that with the help of God, I will make it to the finish.”

ACECEN, EduDeo Ministries’ partner in Nicaragua, gives thanks for stories such as Marilyn’s. “It gives us much satisfaction to know that the work we do in Christian schools with the principals, teachers and parents, is bearing fruits as we are influencing the citizen’s education with values and principles of the Kingdom of God.  Through our schools, God is developing excellent professionals who will work in our country in His service.
