Our missionaries are normal people from all walks of life who have dedicated their lives to serving and following Jesus wherever He calls them. Want to meet them? Check out our Missionary Directory.
I first went to Mexico as part of a missionary internship where I was able to learn Spanish and minister with a team of missionaries through evangelistic children’s dramas, summer camp, a Bible club in my local church, and teaching English in a Christian Missionary School. Now as a full-time missionary I am transitioning to focus helping local churches develop effective youth ministries, while continuing with camp ministry, and discipling students coming to the Word of Life Bible Institute in Mexico.
It all started when I trusted Christ as my Savior about age 6 in my church and continued as a young teenager with a thirst to know Him. I was surrounded by family and a church family who poured into me and taught me to invest in my relationship with God and to be in His Word. At 14 God touched my heart at camp and convinced me that He wanted to use my life in full-time ministry. I served the Lord through summer camps and missions trips throughout high school. Then I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute and God wooed my heart to Him even more through the beauty of His Word and His redeeming love as I watched and experienced Him change hearts. He grew within me the desire that was planted years earlier to introduce young people to Him through the gospel, help them grow in Him through discipleship, and see them do the same with others. The Lord opened the door for me to do so with a missionary internship through Word of Life in Mexico for two years. It was easily extended as I continued to seek the Lord’s direction in my life. As I prepare to serve the Lord now full-time in Mexico, my desire is that Mexican youth will have the same opportunity I was given; to be redeemed, know God, and fulfill His purposes for their lives.
For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death. (Psalm 48:14)
