Every once in a while, you meet someone really brave.  I keep meeting people like that here in Costa Rica.  Consider being a High School Senior, having your life changed, and being willing to share your story to not only your community, but also saying yes to sharing it on video.  She did.  She knows truth this much.  She has a great story, a greater heart and hope for her life.  We’re excited to be part of her life here, and learn from people like her.   She’s headed to University to study Microbiology.  And every time I’m with her, her joy inspires me to live more fully in all circumstances.  God is doing great things through Mariel.
