About Melanie

I was born and raised in a Christian home. The church that my parents attended when I was a child was very legalistic. For many years I was taught that I was okay because I followed the rules, but I had no desire to follow God. When I was 9 years old my pastor decided to divorce his wife, and my family stopped going to church consistently for many years. When I was thirteen my family decided to attend a church after we had moved to New York. I was befriended by a girl in the youth group and, through her encouragement, attended a youth conference. At that conference I started to realize that following the rules was not going to get me to heaven. I needed to place my faith in Jesus Christ and trust Him to save me from my sins. On May 12, 1991, I trusted in Jesus Christ to save me and He has changed my life.

After accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior my family started to attend a church that was familiar with Word of Life. I attended snow camp and dedicated my life to the Lord. I decided to attend the Word of Life Bible Institute and studied the Word of God for two years. I then transferred to Baptist Bible College Clarks Summit, PA and graduated with a degree in the Bible and Missions. Between my Junior and Senior years I participated in my first missions trip to South Africa. I loved having the opportunity to share the gospel with the children.

After finishing college I needed to pay off my student loan debt. Six years later the Lord lead me to visit a friend that was teaching at the Christian Missionary School in Argentina. I loved the ministry that she was involved in and prayed about teaching at the school short term. March 2008 I arrived in Argentina and spent the next two years teaching English as a Second Language, the Bible and Math.

I know that God is calling me to return to the Christian Missionary School as a full time teacher. It is a great opportunity to invest in the lives of the missionary kids and the children of parents that do not yet know the Lord.

Philippians 1:6 "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus."
