We first met Rebecca two years ago while she was serving for two months in La Limonada during her summer break. We learned that she was part of the Vineyard Central community in Cincinnati, OH – where we were beginning to build some strong relationships. When we saw Rebecca’s passion for the people of La Limonada, it immediately felt like she was part of the family.
We have kept in touch over the past couple years. Then when we had a need for a person to lead our child sponsorship program on the ground in La Limonada, Rebecca was the perfect fit. For those of you who sponsor children with us, you will be getting to know Rebecca in the coming weeks and months as she works together with Cherie and Leah.
We’re thankful to have Rebecca as part of our team and we’re grateful that she’ll be devoting her life to serving in La Limonada.
