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.
Because of the size of our staff, everybody helps everywhere, but my major responsibility is with the Bible Institute, I’m the institutional secretary.
I work with the Life department, discipling and counseling some of the female students personally. My heart burns for young girls, and ministry-wise, I would like to work with that age group for the rest of my life.
I am also a MEBE teacher (Bible-teaching ministry in schools); and I help during camp season.
I was born in a non-Christian home, in 1994 in São Paulo, Brazil. I started going to church with my siblings when I was five. As time went by, they left the Lord’s way, but by God’s grace, I didn’t go away. I received Christ at a camp when I was 12.
At the age of 17, I decided to go to a Bible School to learn more about Jesus. During that year I felt the Lord was calling me to go deeper in His Word. Up to that point, my wish was not to be a missionary, but to know more about the Bible. During that time, God was working in my life and leading me to become a full-time missionary. At the end of 2014, I went to Word of Life to do a three-month internship (I planned on going back home after that). During my internship, I clearly understood God was calling me to serve him full-time, and that my life had no meaning unless it was to live for him, to glorify him, and to dedicate all my days to serving him.
A Bible passage that moved me and has carried me on all this time is Acts 20.24. I have become passionate for the northeast of Brazil and his people, and it is a privilege to serve the Lord here full-time.
Since 2014 God has been working in me, teaching me about investing in what is eternal, sanctification and holiness, loving people, and investing in their lives.
“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace”. Acts 20:24
