I grew up in Brazil as a missionary kid and was in church every time the doors were open. I was the church kid who knew all the Sunday school answers and was always well behaved. Even though I grew up in a Christian home, I came to a point in my life where I realized that I was missing a passion for God’s Word and I wasn’t giving Him every part of me. During my Senior year of High School, I decided that I wanted to study God’s Word at the Word of Life Bible Institute in New York. What I didn’t know was that my life would be radically changed because of that decision. I decided to go back for their Second Year program and after two years of studying the Bible I developed deeply routed convictions, found a genuine passion for evangelism and discipleship, learned practical skills to use in ministry, learned what Godly, life-long friendships look like, grew in my overall knowledge and understanding of Scripture, which all lead to growing in my relationship with the Lord! The best decision I have ever made was to put my faith and trust in what Jesus did on the cross for me. The second best decision I have ever made was to spend two years of my life studying the Bible in a life-changing environment like The Word of Life Bible Institute.
