Mariá Ruiz


Hello everyone!

My name is Mariá Ruiz, I am from Brazil, the oldest of a big family, with a passion for new experiences, cultural exchange and social development.

My journey in missions started in 2019 when I was about to finish Law School. After some preparation, I left my career as a lawyer in 2021 to become a full-time volunteer among indigenous tribes in Brazil. Living with these communities for a year and a half was a profound experience that shaped how I see God in every culture and people. Following this direction to reach other nations, I moved in 2023 to Worcester dedicating myself to serve with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in South Africa.

 As part of YWAM we are involved in various ministries, including rehab, hospital, prison, church, maintenance, door-to-door, and community development. We have been training young people in an international and African context, taking them to different nations to apply what they learned, as so, they can see themselves as changemakers in their local communities.

Currently I am engaged with the School of Communication from April to July in Harpenden (UK), a prison ministry in Worcester and in a 6-month Discipleship Training, that will start in August.

Your generous contributions will not only provide essential resources such as food, shelter, and education but will also serve as asset for new projects.

Through my own experiences and encounters with individuals in need, I have witnessed the transformative impact that even the smallest acts of kindness can have on someone's life. With your support, I am committed to make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling, marginalized, and forgotten.

I humbly ask for your partnership in this journey, as we pray and work together to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and flourish.

Thank you for considering my mission and for your support!
