Ministry Description

when we got married in 2011 we were in Romania, we heard about the need for missionaries in Puerto Rico so we started to pray, after we got married we returned to the word of life Argentina where we when serving in the Bible institute and every weekend we went to our local church in Buenos Aires for the work we did in biblical club. After 5 years we understood that it was time to leave Argentina for a new challenge to Puerto Rico, so in 2016 we left to take on the new challenge that we had before us. In the whole process of visas that we needed, we spent a year in word of life Mexico, where our first son Liam was born there, we met Marcelo Diez at that time, director of word of life, Dominican Republic who challenged us to be serving with him for our Projection to Puerto Rico. We accepted the challenge and spent a year there serving and learning what it would be like to be able to begin the Word of Life Ministry of Puerto Rico.

in 2019 we moved to San Juan Puerto Rico where we are currently serving here. Our second son named Axel was born, Our ministry is filled with sports, fun and challenging activities. Our goal is to share the Word of God so that many young people will come to know Christ and grow in their relationship with Him.

Our ministry also gives us a great opportunity to disciple young people as they grow in their devotion to the Lord.
