Maria Masemore

Maria is a missionary in Santa Marta, Colombia. Since submitting to Christ at the age of 9, Maria has had a passion for international missions. Her heart for Colombia and its people grew during a two-month visit in 2012.

Maria is teaching English at the Hope Christian School (Colegio de La Esperanza), a ministry of La Esperanza Church. The school’s vision is to see Christian leaders of integrity and excellence, guided by God to transform the world, shaped by an excellent education that addresses not only high academic standards but godly character formation as well.

Maria loves Jesus and desires to share His love with her students, their families, and her co-workers.
