My Story

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Emily Martin. I currently live in the Dominican Republic and work with a Christian organization called Makarios. I graduated from Baylor University (sic ’em!) in May of 2017 with a major in marketing and a minor in corporate communications. During the summer of 2016 I had the incredible opportunity of interning with Makarios for 7 weeks. While I was there I experienced a significant growth in my faith and completely fell in love with the DR and the people who live here. So, after my college graduation I raised the support I needed to move to this incredible country.

I created this bog to document my summer internship and am continuing to use it for the next few years as I live and do ministry in the DR. Join me in my journey by keeping up with my blog posts. I am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for me and can’t wait to share my stories with all of you!
