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 am currently serving as the Bible Clubs Coordinator for the mountain region of Peru. I am involved with the training and equipping of the youth leaders, as well as the distribution of the Word of Life materials.
I was born in the city of La Oroya, in the province of Junin, Peru. I grew up in a Christian home, the last of 6 siblings. As a child, my parents took me to church on Sundays; however, after I finished high school, I moved to Lima to pursue a better education and study maintenance of heavy machinery. After moving to Lima, I started to live without purpose or goals. I was involved in different kinds of vices in Lima's nightlife.
I came to a Word of Life camp through the invitation of family members who are missionaries in Argentina. The first couple of times that I went to camp, I just went for a distraction from my day-to-day life, I would go back home to live the same life. However, in the camp of 2006, I finally received Christ as my personal Savior. I decided that I wanted to serve God full time. In 2007, I went to study at the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina and I graduated in 2010. I have been serving with WOL Peru since 2012.
Colossians 3:1-4 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
