Meet Elisabet Fernandez-Morales

Have we mentioned that I am in Prague and Lori is in Atlanta? I am living at the International Baptist Theological Seminary here in the Czech Republic through the end of October. IBTS's student body is amazing. Elisabet Fernandez-Morales is a recent college graduate who decided to do some additional studies at IBTS. Read on for her story and how she fits into the Body of Christ.
Have a wonderful day,

Elisabet's Story
My name is Elisabet and I’m from Spain. Last June I graduated in Journalism by the Complutense University in Madrid. While I was studying, I also worked in an office as the assistant of the company’s director. It was a difficult time, because in
Spain there isn’t a flexible system of supporting students who need to work, so you are required to give 100% in both.

I became a Christian when I was five years old, and since then, I’ve always wanted to serve God and people in any possible way. I heard and read about missionaries and pastors, and I thought that, someday, I wanted to become one of them. As a teenager, I started to help in my church with the puppets’ ministry and to collaborate with Athletes in Action (a ministry among athletes).

The years passed by, and I concentrated my strength and time in the fields [in which] I think I’m more prepared to serve: communications and youth leadership. I’ve been part of the leadership team of my church’s youth group for several years and helped Campus Crusade doing some translating and writing.

That’s why I decided to come to IBTS. I want to know more about my Faith; I want to be prepared “to teach, to rebuke, to correct and to train in righteousness”. For five years I’ve been studying how to communicate. Now I want to learn about the thing I want to communicate the most: my Faith.
