Graduate Gives Back - Yulissa Brought to the Home at age Three

Over the next several months we want to share the stories with you of our graduating university students. We are so proud of them and we want to share with you the amazing ways God is at work:  I arrived at the children’s home in Baja when I was three years old. I grew and met incredible people: people full of love for their job and for Jesus. 

These people loved me and taught me my value, my gifts, my talents, and most of all, the love of God.
Today, thanks to their time invested in me, I am who I am.

Now I am studying languages with the goal of teaching
English as a second language. 

I am also studying French and Mexican Sign Language. I hope to continue studying Sign Language and be an interpreter one day.

This spring I will graduate from the university, and I will miss a lot of things about the TJ House. I will miss knowing that when I get home there will be someone to chat with, eat with,
and spend time as a family with. 

I’ll miss playing soccer and volleyball, going to the beach, and getting ice cream. But I also know that I am part of a family that loves me and accepts me just how I am.

After I graduate this May I plan on staying in Tijuana and finding a job as a teacher while I also look for opportunities to use my sign language, continue going to church, and serving my community in any way I can. 
 
I am so thankful to Foundation for His Ministry and all the people who have helped to give me the incredible opportunities I have been blessed with. 

I’m so thankful.
