I was born in Argentina and parents and grandparents knew Je- sus Christ as their Savior. When I was 12 years old, my family had some problems that led me away from the Lord for many years. At the age of 20, I realized that I needed the Lord and asked for forgiveness. I began to serve in the church where I was baptized in 1986. I went to Word of Life Argentina to study and have been a missionary since 1989.
I met a Mexican girl, Arely Burgos. We got married in 1993. We served God for five years in Argentina and then in Mexico since 1998.
I grew up in a home with many problems because my dad was not saved. When I was 15 years old I received Christ into my heart. Even though all my childhood I had gone to church, I was not sure of my salvation. At 18 years of age, I heard of the ministry of Word of Life when Leo and Hirma arrived to Yucatan. I worked at the first Word of Life summer camp as a counselor, and that summer I dedicated my life to the Lord.
After college, I worked a few years and and also supported the ministry of Word of Life until I decided to study at the Bible Institute in Argentina. After my second year I married David. We had two children Ariel and Abigail in Argentina and then we decided to come to Mexico. We were the first married couple who lived here on the property, and then we had our daughter, Keyla.
