The Morales: Alumni Success Story

In Guatemala City, Guatemala, MBU alumni Steven (Christian Ministry, ‘12) and Gabriela (Biology, ‘11) Morales are shining as they daily live out their Christian mission in their home country. After graduating from MBU, the couple moved back to Guatemala to serve as missionaries.

Steven Morales currently teaches Bible courses at the K-12 school Christian Academy of Guatemala, in addition to serving as the school chaplain. As the students seek answers about their faith and the Bible, Steven relies on the teachings and wisdom of his MBU professors, including Dr. Terry Chrisope and Dr. Curtis McClain.

Gabriela Morales is attending medical school to further serve the Guatemalan people. While the teachings of MBU’s Natural Sciences professors, including Dr. Mary Vedamuthu and Dr. Lydia Thebeau, continue to serve Gabriela well in medicine, her instructors’ devotion to the Christian faith instilled a lasting confidence that faith and science don’t have to conflict.

While this MBU couple’s work may be quite different, their objective is very much the same: to share the gospel with a country they love.

A story of shining on.
