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.
I was raised in a Christian home in the former Panama Canal Zone. I received Christ at a young age, and at nine years old started attending the Word of Life camp in New York. It was there that I saw the importance of missions and I started praying that one day there would be a Word of Life camp in Panama. Two years after I graduated from the Word of Life (WOL) Bible Institute and Cedarville, I went to WOL Argentina as a short-term missionary. That is where I met my husband, Mirko. To my surprise, God directed him to open up a WOL ministry in Panama, which was one of the options. I never dreamed I would be returning to Panama as a missionary, and it was also amazing to see how God answered my prayer. I never imagined that God would use me to answer my life-long prayer to have a Word of Life camp in Panama.
