Missionary Spotlight ~ Ellen Barnett, Mexico

Ellen is a native Tennessean who also claims North Carolina as home. She studied elementary education at Wheaton College and recently received her MA in biblical studies from Covenant Seminary.

Ellen doesn’t know of any time she didn’t know Jesus as her loving Friend. She accepted Him as Lord and Savior before age five.

As a result of early contacts with missionaries, Ellen felt the only reasonable response to the Lord’s work in her life was to serve Him in missions. In her teens she reexamined that desire in light of her fears and limitations, but the Lord reconfirmed her decision as she trusted in His power for His work.

Ellen has served in Acapulco since 1975 with MTW. Her ministry has included Bible studies; work with children, youth and singles; and leadership training in Acapulco and Guerrero State. Ellen’s present responsibilities include development and teaching in Maranatha Bible Institute and teacher-training seminars throughout Mexico. She especially enjoys discipling young people through these ministries. Recently Ellen has worked in the formation of New Horizon, a Christian primary/preschool. Ellen is involved in finding resources for development, strategic training for the staff and board, and fundraising for property and future construction.

Pray for Ellen as she is currently on HMA from October 2007-June 2008. Pray for provision of teachers at New Horizon School, as well as new students and funds for the building payments.
