Growing Up to Change the World

Blog Archives:

Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? More than ever, people are growing up saying, "I want to change the world." More than ever, that means telling stories, changing minds and building a tribe.

Starlin has a story of his own and how he wants to grow up to change lives – the lives of those of his countrymen. Starlin lives with his grandmother, mother and two younger sisters in a small poor community in the Dominican Republic. His favourite subject in school is history as he loves learning how the DR came to be a nation and how God has had a plan for all of creation since the beginning of time.

Along with studying the past of Starlin’s country, he is learning about injustices and mistakes of his nation’s ancestors. The effects of those mistakes can be seen right in his own community. Starlin hopes to become a lawyer someday and help those in need. Starlin”=Starlin says, “God has been leading me to tell and defend the truth.”

Starlin became a Christian at Nueva Creacion; it was the first place that he heard about the Gospel in a way that meant something for his life. His teachers tell him often about the greatness of God and how He is powerful to help us in all areas of life. Starlin hopes to grow closer to God so that God can lead him to help the people in his community. This grade 8 student is the only Christian in his family, but he hopes that God shines through him and he can be a beacon, pointing others to the good news that he has learned at school.

This Christmas it is our prayer and hope that you will look a little deeper and see the potential that every child has when given the opportunity to receive a quality, Christ-centred education.
