Castillo stays busy with mission work
Jennifer Castillo has been very busy with her life. After she graduated in 2006 from Pleasanton High School, she enrolled in College at the Southwestern Adventist University, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Education.
She graduated in 2010 and after graduation she was offered a job in South Korea. She taught English in the Elementary Adventist School 1st – 6 grade, for two years. While there during her vacation time, she was busy volunteering her time in missionary work. She joined the 1,000 missionaries around the world and visited several countries like South Korea, China, Thailand, the Philippines and numerous cities in these countries including the Capital Cities.
Castillo enjoys working for the Lord and making a difference in people’s lives, introducing Jesus to the world. She has always wanted to be a missionary since she was little and the opportunity came while she was in South Korea.
She also kept herself busy not only teaching in school, but using her teaching skills. She taught in the Sabbath School and in the Pathfinders Club, at her previous local church in Korea.
Having been a member of the Pleasanton High School Band and playing the flute for four years, she used that experience playing in her local church, Atascosa First Seventh day Adventist Church, every Sabbath and held special music. She also used her talent in the nursing homes and feeding the homeless,
She joined the Orchestra in the University for three years. She took her love for music with her to South Korea and was never embarrassed to play for the Lord. She also played special music in church which encouraged her to purchase a new flute which God provided for her.
Now after two years out of the country, she has come home. Castillo has received a new job in Bristow Adventist Academy in Bristow, Oklahoma as a teacher and principal for grades K – 8th, Employee of the Oklahoma Seventh-day Conference.
She is so happy to be back in the States. Here she will be busy as well but, for her it’s working for the Lord.
She was asked to join their orchestra and Castillo is excited to continue using her talent for the Lord where He needs her. She is looking forward to helping in the Pathfinders Club. Soul winning youth leadership is keeping the Youth serving God.
She has been a Pathfinder since the age of 10 and has never stopped being a Pathfinder. Castillo has been a very motivated and loving person and loves to tell her testimonies to everyone that wants to hear.
Her experience in life is proving fact that studying, staying focus in life and doing great in school pays off. After 24 years of her life, her goal is to always do her best and putting God First in her life is her 1st priority.
Castillo worked hard in school always studying to keep her grades high. In high school she was in the Honor Society and at the University she maintained a GPA of 3.89, proving that when you trust- God with all your heart, soul and mind you will never fail. God is with you!
We all can succeed in life when we work hard to do well in this world. Follow your dreams as Jennifer has, she is still not finished with her missionary work to go to all throughout the world to do more missionary is far from over. She wants to use her vacation to go where He sends her.
We are so proud of Jennifer and we know that she has been unique since she was little never afraid to do new things. Thanks, Jennifer for everything you do to inspire us all to never give up in tough times, for your testimonies are a spirit of hope. God bless you in your new job!
