My name is Ruth Belen Zenteno and am 27 years old. I was born in the city of Cordoba, a province in the interior of Argentina.
I was born in a very dysfunctional home and was far from the Lord, but had heard about Jesus since I was a young girl. I experienced many difficult situations at home but by His grace when I was 12 that I clearly understood the Gospel message and received Christ as my Savior.
I heard a missionary story for the first time when I was 9 years old and God challenged me. It wasn’t until the age of 16 that I took the step to dedicate my life to serve as a missionary. It was a clear call and I responded: “Here I am.” In order to prepare myself to serve the Lord, I decided to dedicate 3 years to study the Word of God and at the age of 19, I went to the Word of Life Bible Institute in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
"And they deperted, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where. Luke 9:6
