My name is Sonia Isabel Mendoza Castillo. I'm 48 years old and part of the Singles Ministry. In 1993, I was baptized at the age of 18 in Mexico City. Being a part of the church has been a joy and a privilege for me, but there have also been difficult times. Throughout my Christian life, God has allowed me to disciple countless women as well as bring souls to Christ, the majority of whom are still faithful disciples to this day. I am currently employed as an English teacher in a public elementary school, but my salary is modest for a teacher at that level and with only 18 hours per week in front of a class. I started studying Pedagogy at UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) a few years ago, I finished my thesis, I just need to make some changes to the conclusions, and I'm hoping they can give me a date for my professional exam soon so that I can fulfil a dream that has been cut short for a long time, as well as develop professionally in another area. Concerning my health, I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer about a month ago. For me, this is a devastating prognosis as I never imagined living through something like this. Unfortunately, a disease of this nature has a significant emotional impact as well as financial implications for me.. They ran several tests on me, and the treatment is quite costly. In this situation, I feel compelled to seek financial assistance as soon as possible, because everything exceeds my budget. Despite everything, I have faith that God is in control of my situation, and that, as his word affirms, he will not subject me to tests that I cannot bear, and that he will even provide us with a way out of the test so that we can bear it (I Corinthians 10:13 DHH). This is a promise I am holding on to, and despite the bad news, I believe that God is a God of power and impossibilities, and I will do everything in my power to be the best I can be, knowing that the rest is up to my creator.
In fact, I've seen a lot of God's love in this process, including brothers who offered me times of prayer for my health and phone calls from a few sisters who offered me encouragement and financial assistance. Without a doubt, God has shown me his infinite love through his people.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile, and I would be grateful if you could assist me financially in any way so that I can continue with my treatment. God bless you, and may your generosity multiply.
