Desire TO SERVE GOD BY DOMINIQUE Reyes

My name is Dominique Reyes. During the three years that my family lived in Texas I had many wonderful experiences such as Mission trips, Youth camps, Leadership Training for Christ, feeding the homeless, and coming to know the A.I.M. program. While my parents studied at S.I.B.I. our family worked with a small church outside of Lubbock called New Home Church of Christ. It was there that I began to teach a Bible class for 2-5 year olds and was baptized into Christ on January 26, 2010. Being part of a mission team who is working in Cuernavaca, Mexico has provided many opportunities for me to participate in God’s kingdom. I am currently teaching a Bible class for 4-7 year olds. I frequently visit the children’s home, and am very involved with the youth group. All these experiences have instilled in me a strong desire to first go through the A.I.M. program at S.I.B.I. in Lubbock, Texas before following my dream to go to Harding University to become an Art Teacher. It is my desire to be an effective and equipped servant of God. I want to know His word, and be able to teach others about Him. There are people everywhere who do not know who Jesus is, and I want to be a part of changing that. I have had the opportunity to spend time with A.I.M.ers during our time in Texas and here in Mexico. There is a team of A.I.M.ers serving in Leon, Mexico that I was blessed enough to be invited to go and stay with for 12 days to see how they live and serve God on the field. This experience only furthered my desire to enter into the A.I.M. program. I will graduate in May of 2012 and plan to go to A.I.M. in August of 2012. The A.I.M. program is an intensive 8-month Bible training program followed by 18 months on the mission field. It is so rigorous that the students who study there are unable to work. Therefore, our family’s sponsoring congregation (Sunset Church of Christ in Lubbock, Texas) and my parents, and another missionary family have already agreed to support me while I study at AIM as well as during my time on the mission field. I am, however, still looking to raise both one-time and monthly support. If you or the congregation you attend would be interested in supporting an A.I.M. student please send me an e-mail at dominiquereyes17@gmail.com and I will send you more information. Please lift my plans to serve God in prayer.
