Jorge and Edel Chang
We work in Local Church department, everything that deals with youth ministry of every church that we work with. Word of Life has two special programs developed by the young people leaders: Bible Clubs from 13 to 18, and young people 18+. We organize many activities like summer camps, conferences, training leaders, meeting with pastors, discipleship, etc. But also we preach the gospel with teams from USA in different places of the country and retreats that we have with schools.
My name is Jorge and I’m 32 years old. For a long time I lived my life without purpose, away from God, doing bad things, and hanging out with bad relationships. I wanted to get money and live on my own. I got saved when I was 24 at a retreat and God changed my life. Not long after that I got involved with Word of Life in Managua and really enjoyed it. In Summer Camp 2010, for the first time, the Lord called me to study His Word at the Bible Institute in Argentina. I graduated from the Institute in 2016 and returned to Managua where God called me to serve as a full time missionary with Word of Life Nicaragua. I also serve in my church as a young people leader; in fact, our ministry works with young people. In August 2017, I traveled to Word of Life Mexico to become an official missionary. Nowaday, I'm serving the Lord full time in this wonderful ministry.
My name is Edel. I´m 26 years old. I was born in a Catholic family and for a long time I was afraid of death. I had no idea what was going to happen after death until one day my cousin shared the gospel with me and I understood the message of Salvation, but it was until 2011 during a Word of Life’s Summer Camp that in front the bonfire and listening to a song I understood how huge had Jesus Sacrifice been for me and I accepted the gift of eternal life. In 2012 I started serving with more commitment in my local church and in July that same year I decided joining Word of Life Bible Institute where I also took the decisión of serving full time and giving my life to our Lord as a missionary. I am now serving as a full-time missionary in the area for the local church ministry of Word of Life Nicaragua.
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24
