Get to Know Katelyn Barone

Hi, I'm Katelyn Barone. I minister in Paraguay.


Ministry Description

In January I will be heading out for 2 years as a Cross Cultural Intern. I will spend 3 months in Mexico to learn Spanish, adjust to the culture, and see how Word of Life does ministry in Latin America. After my time in Mexico, I will be flying to Paraguay where I will be spending the rest of my internship. I will be serving alongside the missionaries in Paraguay, helping with activies such as camps, Bible clubs, dramas, etc.

For right now I am serving God through support raising. At first, I didn't see support raising as a part of my ministry but now I understand why. Philippians 4:17 says "Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account." It is my ministry to bring others onto my team, forming a team which will receive the rewards of the ministry in Paraguay.

About Katelyn

Before I was saved, I was desperately in need of the Lord, it had not committed any so-called "big sins," but I was still a sinner in need of a savior. I was saved around the age of 4 or 5 when I understood and believed that I was a sinner, eternally separated from God and the only way for me to be saved was to believe in the work of Jesus on the cross to pay for my sins. After I trusted Jesus as my Savior, God began teaching me and showing me His love more and more, growing me to be where I am now.

When I was in 11th grade was when I began to realize that God was calling me to full-time ministry. God solidified this calling at the Word of Life Bible Institute through studying His desire for the whole world to hear about Him and His incredible Gospel. I don't know where He will have me go for the rest of my life, but I am going to be faithful with what He gives me now and see where He takes me next.

Psalm 63:3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
