BARTOLA IS THE BEST
SHOWING APPRECIATION FOR BARTOLA
My name is Ashley Taylor, and I’ve been The Journey Kids intern this summer! I’ve been working alongside Bartola and learning from her wisdom, honesty, and love for children. She is awesome, and I have loved working with her! Bartola is one of the best people I know. I think that she has such a great ability to lead children and still have fun! She works so hard weekly to make sure that Sunday mornings run flawlessly. She plans the elementary and pre-k classes, making sure the volunteers know what they are teaching. Bartola is also such a fun person to be around; she livens up the office during the week and loves to joke around and laugh!
Bartola is originally from Honduras, and she has also become a missionary in Tulsa. Spanish is her first language, and so it is awesome to see her speak to other Spanish speakers who often come to the outpost. East Tulsa is very diverse and people come into the outpost who speak Spanish or limited English, and she is able to communicate with them and love on them. She is always very genuinely interested in people and hearing about their lives! I just admire Bartola so much, and I wanted to write a little tribute to her because she deserves to be recognized for all that she does. Everyone at The Journey loves Bartola, and she is an integral part of the church!
