After the BI I decided to study graphic Arts, Computer animation, web design, and video editing. In the year 2002 I became a Word of Life missionary and with my brother and cousin started a new ministry: Word of Life Media. God expanded our ministry only by His grace. Today our Facebook page is the biggest Christian Facebook in our country.
But after many years of service God call me to be part of the Bible Clubs ministry. I was a youth leader in my church since I was 17 years old, but now as a missionary my leaders challenge me to become a regional Bible Clubs missionary. After four years of regional missionary in the year 2013 my leadership challenge me to become the director for Bible Clubs ministry in Argentina. It was a great challenge, and only by Gods Grace, I'm serving ever day our local churches in more than 60 youth groups. Every weekend we visit the churches preaching Gods word, counseling the leaders and challenging them on evangelism and discipleship.
I always had the desire of serving God full time, and to prepare myself for a better service, I decided to study Gods word in the Bible Institute. After graduating from the Bible Institute, while dating Dan, I became a full time missionary following Gods call to my life. Today God gave me the privilege of serving in the dean of women office, specially with the lady students that are starting to date. Counseling is something that I love. Also I'm serving by my husband in the Bible Clubs ministry traveling with him every weekend visiting the local churches and counseling the leaders of the local churches.
It was a great blessing for me to have been brought up to in a God-fearing home. I came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior when I was five years old. One night my father came to my room, he told me about Jesus and why He did for me. At this early age, with the help of my father I understood that I was lost, and that night, the blood of Christ washed my sins away.
In the summer of 1992, at a Word of Life camp, during a camp-fire night my father preached about dedication, that night I went forward and dedicated my life to the Lord. After graduating from high school, I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute. While there, God prepared me to bet serve Him, and burdened my heart for the ministry in Argentina.
In the year 2008 I met a beautiful lady in the Bible Institute and after dating for two years I have the privilege of marrying the love of my life, Johana. In January 2016 God gave us our first son, and his name is Ezequiel and in October 2019 our beautiful daughter Antonella was born.
We are grateful to the Lord for his faithfulness in our lives, and grateful for being able to serve Him full time.
God is good!
My name is Johana Valverde, and I'm married to Dan Nuesch. God gave us a beautiful son that we named Ezequiel. God gave me the privilege of being raise in a Christian home, my parents are missionaries in the province of Mendoza in Argentina. My parents always told me the story of Jesus, and at the age of four years old I understood the message of the Gospel. My mom read me Psalms 3:16 and using a very simple way I understood that I was lost and my sins separated from God, but He send His only son Jesus to die for me in the cross, and His blood cleanse me from all my sins. That day I receive Jesus in my heart as my personal Savior. That moment I was able to grow in my relationship with Him.
