Hey! My name is Vanessa Vives and I am from Bogotá, Colombia. In the fall of 2019, I moved to the US to pursue my BA at Ouachita Baptist University. As I moved countries, my faith has been challenged and I have grown to know Christ in a deeper way. I have also been constantly reminded of God’s great power in working in beautiful ways across the globe. No matter what our background is, we all have a loving father who always takes care of us and gives us the ability to learn, serve, and grow. Although we are far from being perfect, I pray that what I write will encourage you to accept the grace of God in humility and start walking with boldness in what he has prepared for you to do. Christian living is not an absence of hardships, but the blessing of a God who is good and can truly satisfy our souls. Join me in the great adventure of pursuing Christ!
