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.
Currently I am serving in the Local Church Ministry office, discipling, training, and providing resources to youth leaders in the Toluca Valley in the central region of Mexico.
Hi my name is Karla, and I'm from Honduras. At the age of 7, I was invited by some neighbors to a Bible school in their church I learned about Jesus, His sacrifice on the cross, and I was able to surrender my life to Him. As I grew up in the church, I began hearing about missions, and it was at the age of 8 when I said yes to God's call to be a missionary when I grew up.
Later, Word of Life came to my church when I was 13 years old, and it had a profound impact on my life to see how missionaries connected with teenagers. The camps were a great blessing to me, and it was during one of them that the Lord reignited the fire in my heart for missions.
Years later, I came to Mexico to study the Bible, and it was during that time that God, through His Word, moved my heart to stay and serve Him in this beautiful country, impacting the lives of teenagers, just as someone once did with me.
