In her own words…
I was born in La Rioja, Spain and raised in Managua, Nicaragua. From the age of 11, my father involved me in his ministry. I served as a Spanish interpreter for more than 30 teams from a variety of organizations coming to my country to provide medical and dental services, youth missions and disaster relief. In 1996, I moved to Fort Worth to attend Texas Christian University. It was my long-term desire to become a doctor, but I sensed a call to full-time ministry.
On Thanksgiving weekend, 2001, I arrived in Little Rock with all my belongings packed in a U-Haul, knowing God was asking me to climb out of the boat, like Peter, and be willing to take a step of faith as I fixed my eyes on Him in becoming part of a new church plant called the Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas. I served there for nearly eight years as the Director of Cross-Cultural Ministries and Missions.
I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2004 with degrees in International Studies and Spanish with an emphasis on Latin American Literature. Two days after graduation I married my wonderful husband Rob, who loves me like Christ loves the Church.
I now work full-time at the local children’s hospital in Little Rock as a Medical Interpreter, and since September 2009 have had an incredible new journey called motherhood. God has taught me about life, love, and sacrifice in a whole new way through my beautiful son.
My goal is to give God the glory by knowing Him and making Him known by making disciples of all nations, tribes, and tongues. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow me on Twitter at @INESmcbryde.
