Mauryah came to Marvelous Grace Girls Academy when she was 12 years old from Arizonia. Coming from a troubled past herself, she identifies with girls who come to MGGA. Girls who are enrolled here cannot say, "you don't know how it feels to leave your home and come to a ministry like this." Mauryah has experienced first hand the loving care and solid structure that MGGA provides for troubled girls. Prior to graduating High School from MGGA, she trusted Christ as her Saviour and, shortly after, she felt a strong call toward Missions. Now Graduated, she has desired to stay and give back to the Ministry that helped her during her struggling years. She is Certified in CPR/AED, and Crisis Prevention/Intervention . She is involved in continuing training and education at MGGA, including A.C.E. School of Tomorrow Curriculum Monitor.

Rachel is an RN as well as certified in CPR/AED, and Crisis Prevention/Intervention. She is involved in continuing training and education at MGGA, including A.C.E. School of Tomorrow Curriculum Monitor. She is one of our cooks and makes excellent Egg Rolls!!!

"I don't belong here...everyone is smiling and I don't smile."
This is a quote from Laurel when she arrived at MGGA as a student. She struggled with depression and other factors of life were just overwhelming for her. She trusted Christ as her personal Saviour and He shines through her daily.
We are thankful to have back to MGGA. After she graduated High School at our Academy, she went back home to Mississippi. She enjoyed being home with her family, and began College. Not too many months went by, that she felt called back to MGGA to help others.
Laurel is helping here as well as going to College for a teaching degree. She will finish her Associates by December, 2021.
She is trained in CPR/AED; Crisis Prevention Instruction
