Our ministry is developed through 22 churches where we are teaching the Bible every week. Mariela focuses on the ministry of women, counseling wives of pastors and training leading girls through counseling and teaching, also serves at the Biblical Word of Life Argentina Institute in the area of administration and counseling of girls. Victor has a ministry of influence among the students, teaching, counseling and discipline young people. Every weekend we develop a plan for training and study for local leaders and pastoral support.
I was born in Santiago de Chile, at age 12 I understood that I needed a savior, at age 19 I dedicated my life to serve God full time in one Camp of Word of Life in 1996. I came to Argentina to study 4 years in the IBPV. After finishing I began to serve in the ministry of Biblical Clubs with 12 churches, so we met with Mariela and we got married. Today we have 2 Argentineans children, Fabricio (9 years old), Franco (5 years old), we serve God together as a family.
I was born in Bolivia in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, at the age of 12 I met Christ as my personal Savior and three years later consecrated my life to the Lord in the Camp of Word of Life on a camp fire, dedicate my whole being to serve full time to my God. After completing my university career in 2001 I came to the Biblical Institute Word of Life Argentina, I finished three years and at that time I met Victor who was already a missionary and we were married in 2006. Today we serve together as missionaries to full time.
