Meet the Students – Daniella

Where are you from?

Southwestern Ontario

What is your testimony?

When I was 9 years old I was listening to the lyrics of a Christian song. “Jesus you gave your life away for me.” That is when I realized that my relationship with Christ has to be personal, and not through my parents.

When I was 15, Mr. P took a chance on me by giving me an internship at Child Evangelism Fellowship to teach Bible lessons to kids. It was here my heart grew for people to understand the truth of God’s Word.

How did you end up at Ethnos Training?

When I was at Bible school, my professor asked me, “What is God’s goal in all of human history?”

I had no idea.

He went on to explain how God’s goal is to be worshipped and known by all nations, through all of history.

“Nations” has jumped out from Scripture ever since.

Then I learned that a third of the world not only has never heard of Jesus before, but they have no access to a clear gospel presentation in their language. My heart will always be broken for Ontario’s kids, but it began to break for the unreached nations.

Then I went to Papua New Guinea on Interface with Ethnos. At the end of the trip, we went to a tribe that used to be unreached (no Bible, no church, no gospel). But now, they have a church!!! Willis and Kena (a church elder and his wife) shared how there were not 1, not 2, but 8 different villages in their language group who were asking to hear God’s Word for the very first time. And these dear believers wanted to go, not because of obligation, but because of desire. If they were willing to go, why wouldn’t I be willing?

What is something you love about Ethnos Training?

I do not feel ready to go overseas! But Ethnos is equipping me to be ready on all counts — practical skills, spiritual maturity, relational support, strategic plan, and current ministry opportunities.
