<p>​"I was placed in a nonprofit organization that serves refugees, and I found myself falling in love with the work and the people. I also really like San Antonio and all the opportunities that it has to offer young people like me willing to do service. I am very happy to stay with my placement organization and work with them for this amazing cause."<br></p>Luz Varela<p>​<span style="color:#000000;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;font-size:14.66px;">Luz served with Mennonite Voluntary Service at RAICES in San Antonio. </span><br></p>
<p>​"La capacitación de la IDM me ha ayudado a evaluar y cambiar la manera en que sirvo al Señor y a su cuerpo: la iglesia. El uso de grupos pequeños de discípulos de Cristo que a su vez forman más discípulos de Cristo nos ha dado nueva luz sobre cómo cumplir la Gran Comisión de Jesucristo."<br></p>Aureliano Velazques<p>​Pastor del Templo Alabanza, Moline, Illinois<br></p>
