Finding Joy in the Journey

Welcome to one the newest college faculty members: assistant professor Dr. Marc-Aurel Martial! Born to some of the first church members in Haiti, married to his college sweetheart, and father of three children whose ages range from 21 to 2, Marc adds a light to the college that fellow faculty and students thoroughly enjoy. Even though he has had some trials in his life, he sees these as an opportunity to learn and rely wholly upon the Lord.
Marc came to the United States when he was around 17 years old. One of his heroes, the mission president of the Port-Au-Prince mission in Haiti from 1991 through 1996, was named Fitzner André Joseph. Joseph always treated Marc with respect, and inspired him to consider serving a mission. He followed Joseph’s advice and served in the Ivory Coast Abidjan mission.
After returning home, Joseph and his wife helped Marc with the application process to come to the United States and attend Rick’s College. Marc’s family came together to sponsor him and he started his journey. He eventually transferred to BYU and applied for the nursing program in 1998.
