Dignata School of Justice, making Diciples around the World.
Maria Skinner was born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico the oldest girl among 10 other siblings. Her family was markedly Christian and at the age of seven, Maria gave her life whole heartedly to Jesus. She was always moved by stories about missionaries and their sacrifices for God to reach the lost and then decided this was the life she wanted. After years in church she was prepared to accompany her older brother to evangelize the migrant labor camps of the Florida’s sugar cane region in the 70’s where she was introduced to the American youth swept up in the “Jesus Movement” of that time. Her first stop was Port au Prince, Haiti and then off to the Dominican Republic where she was her future husband’s translator from English into Spanish. Maria occupied herself with having two children, home schooling them in the field, working side by side with her husband, teaching and ministering in women’s groups and translating for many youth groups in the field. This task was successfully completed while evangelizing in 33 countries even though transient in the mission field. As her children grew up they too entered ministry.
