Aurelia is a native from Phoenix, Arizona and relocated to Marion, OH as an 8 year old with her parents, sister and brother. She is a graduate of Marion Harding HS class of 2000, and a 2014 graduate of Marion Technical College with an Associates Degree of Applied Science in Human and Social Services.
Aurelia has 4 children, Leticia, Mariana, Ray J and Vanessa who keep her extremely busy. Aurelia’s love for Christ came at an early age. As an adult, she now looks back and recognizes the constant pursuit Christ had for her. At around 10 years old, Aurelia accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. It wasn’t until a very powerful encounter with Christ in 2010, that she really started walking with the Lord. Ever since then, she has been in pursuit of Him. In 2014, Aurelia was called to Haiti on a mission trip with OPG. This experience has left a huge impact on her life and she is adamant on spreading the love, joy, grace and goodness of Jesus to anyone she can share it with.
Aurelia is a member of Genesis church here in Marion and has accepted a volunteer position with OPG with enthusiasm and excitement. She is looking forward to seeing where God is leading her in this new journey.
