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.
This year we are coordinating the Leadership and Discipleship Course at the Word of Life Bible Seminary in Brazil. (2017)
I was raised on the mission field and have always considered this a great privilege. When I was about 5 years old I accepted the Lord Jesus into my heart. During the ups and downs of my teenage years, I fought a real battle with self acceptance but with God's help I eventually realized that my worth came through Christ and this made all the difference in the world. After college the Lord took me through “boot camp” for 2 years preparing me for future service and in 1989 the Lord led me back to Brazil to help out for a year at the Word of Life Bible Seminary. During that year God made it clear to me that that was where He wanted me to serve Him.
I accepted the Lord as my Savior at the age of 6 during a thunderstorm when I told my mom that I was afraid and during our conversation she led me to Christ. Since that day I wanted to be a missionary. After high school I wanted to go to the Word of Life Bible Seminary but the Lord had other immediate plans for me. 9 years later His plans led me to the Seminary and that is where I met Steve. One of many blessings that the Lord has given me is that He has called Steve and me to be missionaries
Steve’s verse - James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. Mirian’s verse - Philippians 1:6 …being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
