Martin’s Story: Paying It Forward Through Teaching

by | Jul 27, 2018

One of the main programs we have at Mustard Seed is training teachers so they can bring world-class education back to their hometowns and villages. We do this through an innovative teacher and leadership training program we’ve established called TransformNation. Through this program, our vision is to exponentially increase the number of local leaders who will be quipped to serve communities all over their nation. This is one of the ways we plant small mustard seeds that will grow into something Christ-sized big!

The students who enroll in TransformNation have a burning desire to serve their communities and work hard to raise the funds necessary to cover their expenses during the mutli-year training program. From time to time, we will introduce you to the future leaders in the TransformNation teacher training program so you can get to know them better and pray for them.

Today, we’d like to introduce you to Martin. He’s in his first year at TransformNation.

Martin is the eldest of four children. He loves good food, travel and he loves to learn! In his free time, you’ll often find Martin playing soccer and volleyball.

Since Martin’s father is an evangelist, he grew up hearing about the Christian faith. A few years ago, he made the decision to dedicate his life to Christ and got baptized.

Martin shared with us that as an adult, he now realizes he is responsible for his own actions. He wants to do his best to ensure that his walk is steady with the Lord. Martin’s dream is to become a teacher because he believes it is a noble profession. He has learned so much from his teachers at TransformNation already and he wants to pay that forward by sharing what he has received with others. We’re inspired by Martin’s passion to serve the next generation and ensure that they are saved, through education and faith.

We’re excited and inspired to support students like Martin in the TransformNation teacher training program!
