Miguel: My parents moved to America from Colombia when I was 12, lost and on my way to hell. By God’s plan, an uncle of mine was witnessed to by a missionary at a Starbucks in Alpharetta, GA. After that day the missionary that witnessed to my uncle started Bible studies at my uncle’s home, that is where I heard about Christ and what He had done to pay for my sin debt. After hearing the gospel many times, I decided to repent of my sin and follow Christ from that day on as my Lord and Savior.
In the summer of 2011, I went to my first missions camp hosted by Vision Baptist Church in which God worked in my heart about how great of a need there is around the world and how my life is not mine to live but for God to do His will in my life.
It was in that camp that God called me to be a missionary to a lost world. Today I am a church planting missionary to the country of Colombia. I left to find the American dream but instead I found a new life in Christ, and now I am going back to share the truth to the country of Colombia.
Mariangela: I grew up attending church and assumed I was saved just because my family was. I realized later on
that I was completely wrong but pride kept me from seeking God. In 2005 I went on a missions trip to one of
the Islands in the Philippines. While there I was asked to witness to someone. I started reading and explaining the
Romans road, as I had learned growing up in Sunday school. But reading those verses that day made me realize that I was so lost and in deep need of a Savior. That day I repented of my sin and accepted Christ’s free gift of Salvation.
