Ismael and Liege Messias
Cordinator of Teaching at the Public Schools
I was born in a christian home and at the age of 9 I understood that I am a sinner and needed to recognize Jesus Christ as my only and sufficient Savior.
In 1982 I met my wife and we got married on May 12, 1990. After six years of marriage on a missionary trip with the youth of the church, we felt a desire to serve the Lord because we saw a high index of idolatry in this region. In 1997 a friend of ours told us about a missionary conference at Word Life and we accepted the invitation, it was in this conference that my wife and I decided to serve the Lord full time. I was an employee of a public company where I was admitted through a public tender and came to serve the Lord. The same thing happened to my wife, she was a teacher and also resigned.
We made the decision to prepare ourselves at Word of Life Bible Institute and after that we chose to be part of this mission beginning our missionary journey.
