Vanessa Andrade


Prior to being called to serve with Cru, I had the wonderful opportunity to work as a mental health therapist. It was such a privilege to work in a discipline that concerns itself with improving the quality of life of individuals. During my final year of graduate school I discovered Cru. Despite not being involved with Cru throughout most of my college career, God still used it to play a major role in my spiritual development. Through Cru I gained a greater understanding of scripture and God. In addition to this, while on summer mission with Cru in 2017, I grew aware of the importance of sharing the gospel, as well as the need. Although my career plans at the time were to pursue full-time social work, this awareness sparked a desire within me to point those I encounter in the direction of Jesus, thus ultimately leading me to join staff with Cru and serve with Destino.

In my role with Destino, I want to use my own cultural lens to assist in the creation of content that will speak to the hearts of people in Spanish speaking countries. I want everyone to have the opportunity to learn about Jesus, regardless of where they are at in the world or what their spoken language is. Overall, I am committed to sharing the gospel with people around the world so that everyone can have an opportunity to know about God.

Would you prayerfully consider joining my team of ministry partners to reach people with the gospel by financially supporting me with a gift of $100 a month or an amount that is significant to you? 

Thank you so much for your support. Without you, I would not be on the mission field. 

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” 

(Colossians 3:17)
