Victor and Catalina Armijo
We serve in the area of open air evangelism, and teaching churches how to evangelize. During camp I am involved in the area of program and Catalina is the camp nurse.
I was born into a Catholic home. There are 4 boys in my family and I am the third. When I was 8 years old I started going to a Sunday school class at a evangelistic church, but I was never secure in my salvation. When I was 12, I received Christ as my savior and knew I had eternal life . When I was 16 years I went to summer camp at Word of Life Chile, and during that week I dedicated my life to the Lord. When I graduated from high school I was 17 and I decided to study at the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina to prepare to become a missionary. I studied for 3 years and then when I graduated I came back to Chile in 1991 to join the missionary staff of Word of Life Chile. During this time I had met Catalina while she was studying nursing. We felt the Lord leading us to get married, and we were married in 1995.
When I was 9 I was invited to a children's meeting near my house. A missionary from ABWE told me about God's love and my need of a savior. It was then I received Jesus in my heart. I continued going to an Evangelistic church growing up. When I was 16 I was invited to summer camp at Word of Life Chile, and it was during that week that I dedicated my life to the Lord. When I finished high school I studied nursing for 3 years. During that time I had met Victor and we were engaged. When I finished nursing school I went to the Word of Life Bible Institute for 1 year and when I came home Victor and I were married and I joined the staff of Word of Life Chile. The Lord has blessed us with 3 beautiful children. I am so thankful to the Lord for the opportunity to evangelize and disciple. I am also thankful for the opportunity to serve the Lord as a nurse at Word of Life.
Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: 2 Thessalonians 3:1
