I grew up in a home where we used to go to the Christian church every Sunday. Since I was little, I’ve heard and learned about God working in and through the lives of His children, and I always felt the desire to experience that. I grew up thinking that I was a true child of God, because one day I said a prayer to receive Christ, and because I learned how to behave like a Christian. No one suspected that I wasn´t, only me when I felt the emptiness in my heart. I couldn’t understand why, if Jesus was the Bread of Life, I kept on feeling empty. But God, in His mercy, allowed me to go through a very humiliating and painful situation, that made me see who I really was: a sinner in desperate need of His Forgiveness. It’s hard to realize that when you’ve learned to do the right thing, and when you believe that you are good person. When I understood that sin was in my heart, He forgave me and gave me a new mind and heart. For the first time I had a strong desire to share Christ with other so that they could be free like me. In addition, I have a burden for young people, that are growing like I did, thinking that they’re Christians just because they behave like ones. I cannot think in another way to spend my life and time on this earth but sharing Christ and everything that He is teaching me, and this is what I understand is God’s calling for me. In 2012, I went to Argentina, to the Word of Life Bible Institute. I stayed there for 3 years studying the Bible and learning how to serve God. In 2015, when I came back to Nicaragua, I learned that God wanted me to serve Him through the Word of Life (WOL) Ministry here in Nicaragua.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant... Phil 2.5-7
