Molly Noonan is a recent graduate of Lee University. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Pastoral Ministry. For the past four years, she has worked in various areas ranging from urban and global missions to youth ministry and teaching English to internationals from around the world. Molly speaks Spanish at a basic to intermediate level and is excited to spend the next year working towards full fluency.

At a young age, Molly began to develop a deep passion for working with internationals and youth. Sensing that God was calling her to pursue full-time ministry, she has continuously pursued opportunities to do outreach and development work in Haiti and Guatemala, and stateside in Louisville, Nashville, Atlanta, and Indianapolis. She has a deep passion for seeing people fall in love with Jesus in any and every context!

In 2013, Molly made her first short-term mission trip to Guatemala with Northside Christian Church to serve alongside of Casas Por Cristo. During this trip, Molly absolutely fell in love with the people and culture in Guatemala. She returned in 2014 and 2015 to once again build alongside Casas Por Cristo. During this time she learned about Morning Glory Christian Academy. Feeling as though God was pushing her to spend a longer period of time in Guatemala, she spent the summers of 2016 and 2017 serving as an intern at Morning Glory. Approaching her college graduation, she began to pray about moving to Guatemala as a full-time field missionary. CEIBA VIDA reached out to her and she gladly accepted the opportunity to serve alongside us!

Molly is CEIBA VIDA’s Marketing and Education Assistant. In January 2019, she will move to San Raymundo, Guatemala, to serve as an apprentice at Morning Glory Christian Academy and missionary with CEIBA VIDA. She will first head to Antigua, Guatemala late summer 2018 to attend Spanish language school.She is excited to return to Guatemala and continue to cultivate our partnership with Morning Glory as she is mentored and works under Lori Nij.

CEIBA VIDA is so excited to have Molly. Since joining our team, she has already stepped up to support marketing efforts stateside in the realms of social media and cultivating a working relationship with another one of our partners Rescate Balam.
