About Juan

At the age of eight I accepted Christ into my heart. I was blessed to be born into a Christian family. At the age of 30 I was challenged to attend the Bible Institute in Argentina. While studying in the institute I understood that God was calling me to serve in full-time missions. It was at the Bible Institute in Argentina that I met my wonderful wife, Noemi. In 1999, Noemi and I came to Word of Life Bolivia and we have been serving here with our two sons ever since.

About Noemi

When I was six I received Jesus into my heart as my personal Savior and was always involved in different ministries in my church. When I became a university student I was invited to go to the Word of Life Camp in Argentina. It was there I made the decision to dedicate my life to the service of the Lord. God has blessed me with Juan as well as our two sons and we continue to serve the Lord here as a family.

Life Verse
