About Guillermo

My wife and I both got saved at an early age, but dedicated our lives to the Lord in our youth. God called us to serve Him and after getting married in 1989, we both decided to go and study the Word of God at the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina, a ministry which had a great impact in our lives.

In 1991 my wife and I were studying God’s Word at the WOL B.I., when we decided to serve God full time as missionaries. Then, He called us to serve in Costa Rica, our home country. For fourteen years the Lord allowed us to enjoy serving in that country, with people who were such a great blessing to us, that God put together for the great task that in that time we were able to accomplish by His Grace. For years we thought that was the place in which we were going to serve for the rest of our lives, and we were thankful for that.

However, in 2002 the Lord began to lay a burden both in my heart and my wife’s heart, for the country of Nicaragua, and an increasing desire to go and serve Him in that place. It was always called to my attention that Nicaragua was one of the only two countries in Central America (Belize is the other one), to not yet have the WOL Ministry, even though it is a country wide open for the Gospel. Years went by and no one ever faced the challenge. We had the opportunity to be part of several WOL evangelistic trips there and God really touched our hearts with the need of the youth and the possibilities to do ministry. When we realized that there was no one there doing what Word of Life does, we began to ask God to give us the opportunity to serve Him there. So we began to pray, and shared our desire with our authorities. After witnessing how God led things His way and in His time, on December 17th, 2006, our directors officially told us that we were approved to go to Nicaragua to start the Word of Life Ministry. Brothers and sisters, you can’t imagine the joy in our hearts of seeing God work in His timing and His giving us such a huge challenge, of which we know we are not worthy.

We finally arrived to Managua on October 30th, 2007. It has been the best time of our lives serving God, and we are deeply thankful to God for this enormous blessing. Andrea and Valerie, our daughters, both fell in love with this Country and its people, and we enjoy every minute here. God is allowing us to disciple young boys and girls, to preach the Gospel and teach the Word. We couldn't think of anything better to do. Praise the Lord for this wonderful opportunity and please pray for us as we continue to help build our part of the Body of Christ in Nicaragua.
