Patricia Maracaja Medeiros
Word of Life Northeast of Brazil Secretary;
Public School Bible Teacher;
Word of Life Camp Secretary.
I was born in Northeast of Brazil. My family were not christian. I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior at an evangelistic meeting on October 7,1979.
In 1987 I graduated from the University as a Lawyer and was preparing to be a judge. At this time my father was murdered and I couldn´t understand how life could be short. I Thought What was I doing to free people from eternal death? I understood the laws of man, but I had forgotten the laws of God. In 1988, I Consecrated my life and I went to the WOL Camp and I decided to study at the Bible Institute. Mi family thought I was crazy but I knew that this was the Best decision for the Lord. I finished the BI and have been working with WOL for the past years.
Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
