Hey friends! My name is Ellie, and I am from the suburbs of Chicago. I have always had a huge heart for serving the Lord and the community, and I have my grandparents and my parents to thank for that. They have been a true inspiration in my walk with God, and my grandparents even served as missionaries in Japan. The Lord called me into ministry right before my sophomore year at Indiana Wesleyan University where I was able to obtain my bachelor’s in Adolescent Ministry. For the past 5 years, I have worked in church ministry with both children and adults. I moved to El Paso in April 2021, and I have grown to love the community and the culture here. I am so excited to be a part of the team at Casas and can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for this summer!
I am here in El Paso, building houses for families in Juarez with Casas por Cristo simply because I love it. Nothing compares to the feeling that you get after working all week, knowing that God has blessed a family through your words, efforts, and motivation. There is no other way I would like to spend my summer other than building houses because of Christ, while having and impact on families and being able to show them God’s love through these houses. This whole experience has impacted me greatly, making me realize that all I want to do is to fulfill my purpose which is to spread and share the love of Jesus Christ.
Hi y’all! My name is Rebecca Thompson, and I am originally from Macon, Georgia. I called Fort Worth, Texas, home for four years while I earned my Bachelor’s degree from TCU, which is where I was first introduced to Casas por Cristo. After my first mission trip with Casas in March of 2020, I knew that God was calling me to serve here for a longer period of time. Flash forward to now and I’m taking a gap year to serve this ministry as a Team Coordinating resident before pursuing a Master’s in Divinity to become a campus minister. I’m so blessed to be able to serve Casas, and I can’t wait to see how God continues to move through this ministry!
