DTS: Curitiba/Brazil, 2009
We have always had a desire in our hearts to Serve the Lord. We have always been very involved in our church. In our church there were some missionary events and they always burned in our hearts. Until we had the opportunity as a couple to attend the YWAM DTS school in 2009. In the first evangelisms where we saw people in the middle of the street giving their lives to Jesus in tears, we understood that this was what we wanted to do for the rest of our lives.
In 2019 we were challenged by God to come to the States to improve the language and go further with our calling, this time there were not just two of us, but we had our children who were born and raised in missions. With the pandemic, we had to redirect our desire to improve the language and supported a project to start a base in a region where YWAM was not present. In 2023, God not only reminded us of the calling, but he gave us all the conditions to be in the United States and encouraged us to settle down long-term with the goal of learning more and giving our all to the nation. It is a great privilege of God to be called and separated to be His as long as we live and this has been our goal in life.
