About Nestor

I was born into a big family. At age 21, my cousin invited me to a WOL camp in Argentina. After hearing the Gospel every day for almost a week I finally accepted Christ as my Savior and that same day I dedicated my life to Him. I enrolled myself to study at the Word of Life Bible Institute. Afterwards, I went with a group of former students to Chutbut, Argentina to plant a Bible Missionary Church. I stayed there for 15 years and it is there where I married Viviana. In 2003 we left for Bolivia to collaborate with the WOL ministry and from that point on we've been serving in Bolivia. We are praying to be able to finish well.

About Viviana

At the age of 12, I went to a WOL camp and there I accepted Christ in my heart as my Savior. That same week, I dedicated my life to Christ. In 1985, I started studying at the Word of Life Bible Institute and was there for three years. We have three precious children: Priscilla, Josue, and Daniel. We pray that in everything we do we will bring glory to God.

Psalm 86:11 Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name.
