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.
My personal life's purpose is to glorify God, knowing and shaping myself to Christ's charater, through the Word of God and the Holy Spirit's work, in order to serve and proclaim Him to the ends of the earth, according His purpose.
My personal vison is to influence lives to a personal and deep relationship with Christ, through teaching, discipleship and training, so that they glorify God with transformed and productive lives.
With my family, I serve God with the Word of Life Mission at Mozambique since 2010. Our mission is to promote the glory of God by helping to edify the church of Jesus Christ in Mozambique through the most diverse means of evangelism and discipleship aimed mainly at Mozambican youths.
I was born in a christian family. My father and my mother are believers. But, this was not enough to give me salvation. I was born a sinner, separated from God because of my sin (Rom 3:23). One day, when I was a child, I recognized my sin and believed in Jesus Christ as my only and sufficient Savior (John 3:16). He forgave me and made me His child (John 1:12). I grew up in church, but I had a double life. As a teenager I went to a Word of Life Camp for a few times. There, I was challenged to commit myself more to Jesus. So, I decided to devote my life to Him (Mark 8:34).
After finishing school, I went to Word of Life Bible Seminary to study the Word of God and serve Him better. Seeking to know God's will for my life, I read Psalms 25:12 in my Quiet Time - "Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose".
During my time in the seminary (5 years), I gradually got involved with the ministries of the Word of Life and God called me to work with this mission. I became a Word of Life missionary in 2006, with my wife Bibiana. After serving four years in Brazil, God called us to serve Him in Mozambique, starting the Word of Life there.
Today, we live to reach the mozambican youth with the Gospel of Christ. We want to be faithful and useful, to the glory of God.
I gave my life to Jesus when I was 10 years old, during one of my church's camp. At 12, dedicated my life to serve Jesus whetever He would like to send me, but always prayed that, if possible, He would not send me alone.
So, He surprised my heart allowing me to marry a godly young man, who grew up close to me, at the same church, and had also dedicated His life to serve Jesus.
I am a graduated journalist, and have used the gifts that God gave me to help my ministry and team in all the ways I can. Also to help young ladies (specially)to get to know the Lord, wich really encourages my heart to seek more of Jesus too!
We hapilly serve the Lord in Mozambique, where God gave us two beautiful and precious daughters. Is also a GREAT part of my ministry to teach Ester Nyeleti and Elisa Tsakissa to love the Lord, His Kingdom and to love the privilege we have to live and serve Him here.
Psalm 25:12 Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
