Daniel and Camden Di Gilio
Daniel serves in the impact zone and multimedia area.
I grew up in a Christian home. My parents left their home country of Argentina to serve as missionaries in Mexico. From a young age, I had the example of my parents who lived lives of faith and service to the Lord. I heard the gospel several times through the different ministries but did not accept Christ as my personal Savior until I was nine. When I was twelve, I dedicated my life to the Lord and when I was fifteen, at a missions conference, I decided to serve the Lord as a missionary. I studied for three years in the Bible Institute and since 2009 I have been serving the Lord with Word of Life Mexico. It has been amazing to see God ´s faithfulness has he holds my life and service in His hands day after day.
It all started when I trusted Christ as my Savior about age 6 in my church and continued as a young teenager with a thirst to know Him. I was surrounded by family and a church family who poured into me and taught me to invest in my relationship with God and to be in His Word. At 14 God touched my heart at camp and convinced me that He wanted to use my life in full-time ministry. I served the Lord through summer camps and missions trips throughout high school. Then I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute and God wooed my heart to Him even more through the beauty of His Word and His redeeming love as I watched and experienced Him change hearts. He grew within me the desire that was planted years earlier to introduce young people to Him through the gospel, help them grow in Him through discipleship, and see them do the same with others. The Lord opened the door for me to do so with a missionary internship through Word of Life in Mexico for two years. It was easily extended as I continued to seek the Lord’s direction in my life. I was recently married this year to Daniel Di Gilio. As we serve the Lord in Mexico, my desire is that those we minister to will have the same opportunity I was given; to be redeemed, know God, and fulfill His purposes for their lives.
