About David

I was raised in a catholic home. At the age of 17 my sister Sophie got me a scholarship to attend a Word of Life camp. I got saved at that week of camp. I got a secular job and was in it for ten years, during which time I took my vacation and went to serve as a camp counselor. In 1998 I began serving with Word of Life on a full-time basis, and in 2001 I went to the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina. There, I went through the bilingual class to learn Spanish. After my graduation, we served with Word of Life Argentina for 4 years doing jail ministry 3 times a week, helping with church planting, doing door to door evangelism, and coordinating in the bilingual program.

About Elli

I was raised in a missionary home and came to know the Lord at the age of 9 after my father shared the gospel with me. Later in life I studied nursing to use it as a tool to serve God and others. I then went to the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina, where David and I met and got married. We have three boys: David Jr., Daniel, and Benjamin.
