Meet Them Where They Are | Drusilla Curtis’s Story

“Jesús te ama.” Jesus loves you. Drusilla Curtis continued to say to the six-year-old little girl that was sitting at her desk table. During her fifth mission trip to Guatemala with the First Baptist Dallas volunteer team, Drusilla was teaching her and the other children at Vacation Bible School about how God created everything and how He sent His Son for us. With the majority of the population practicing Catholicism, most Guatemalans know the name of Jesus but do not know what it really means.

Drusilla has a special connection with Guatemala – it is where she grew up and spent the majority of her childhood. From a very young age, her parents were strong Christians and very active in their church. Her mother was involved in serving and instilled this in Drusilla. She remembers her saying, “I don’t care how or what, but our jobs are to serve.” Drusilla swept the floors, sang in the choir, and did whatever people asked her. She didn’t know it then, but this was the beginning of her calling to serve.
