Monica Palacios, London, ON

Hi everyone!!

Welcome back, yes, welcome back! My name is Monica Palacios Castillo, I’m 19 years old and I’m from London, Ontario. You will most likely find me dancing (and a lot of it), falling asleep to every movie, walking my dog, being outdoors especially when the sun is shining, or going on road trips/car rides. My favourite colour is yellow and if there were to be any colour that would best describe me, it would be just that.

Through God’s divine providence, He has asked me to do a second year of mission on NET. Saying “yes” to God’s call for me has brought me great joy and peace and has allowed my heart to be at rest. During this past mission year, I’ve been able to truly discover what it means to be a woman of God and radiate that to my team and the woman around me. God has brought me to the source of His love for me which has shown me my true identity as a child of God. My heart’s greatest desire is to be God’s vessel and show other women what it means to wholeheartedly be a blooming flower for Heaven’s garden.

Through every adventure that God takes us on, there will always be hills and valleys along the way. Through these highs and lows; God has taught me that He is right there with me through it all and He is always there, holding my hand even when I don’t realize it. Everything that God has blessed me with this year, I want to faithfully return it back to my brothers and sisters who I will get to walk with in the upcoming mission year. It’s not only in the blessings and joys of serving Christ but also in the lowest parts where God has taught me the most about what it means to walk and rely on Christ, just me and Him. He has guided my heart to unite myself to His cross in these moments and where there is a cross to bear, there is always a resurrection.

My brothers and sisters, wherever you’re at in your life whether you feel far away or very close to Christ, God will always send the people you need at the right time even if it’s in the waiting just like He did for me with the community on NET. It has been a great gift walking with my brothers and sister who all strive for sanctification…and I can’t wait to do it all again!

I’m currently stationed in the Fraser Valley Team in British Columbia. I am so excited to be part of this team and to grow in new ways this year. One of the things I am most excited about is to be able to journey with woman and grow in our femininity as woman of God together! I can’t wait to see how the Lord moves in the youth and people we may encounter this year.

I invite you to join me once more on this mission! Anyone who donates $50, or more monthly will receive a NET newsletter and a personal letter from me updating you on my mission throughout the year, I am so excited to see what God has in store for me this year and can’t wait for all of you to come on this journey with me!Thank you so much for visiting my page and taking the time to learn more about me. I hope you all know it means a lot to me.

My love and prayers are with all of you,
